Literary Calligraphy by Susan Loy

Literary Calligraphy Cards


Susan Loy of Literary Calligraphy in Moneta, VA, joins text from literary classics or Biblical passages with delicate watercolor images and creates a unique bond between fine art and literature.

Letters were used by Ralph Waldo Emerson to "celebrate...friendship." Susan Loy has chosen to illuminate texts taken from the actual correspondence of Emerson, Yeats, and Dickinson to create a unique, Literary Letters note card. Each is reproduced from an original watercolor painting by Susan Loy. She chose to illustrate and embellish the texts with elements suggested in or by the letters, such as sunflowers, laurel, and roses.

The inside of the card is blank to allow the writer to use Literary Letters note cards for any occasion. 9 acid-free cards & 9 linen envelopes. 3 each of 3 designs.
