Here are some wonderful samples from lettering artists Yvette Rutledge and Vince Mitchell.
Most of the work you see here is Yvette's commissioned work. Her forte is original letterstyles, and her published work is in collections all over the world such as the court seal, a retirement gift for a judge in Washington D.C., to calligraphy for a book by Barry Moser's Pennyroyal Press. Yvette is an accomplished calligrapher and teacher.
Vince still studies and learns much from Yvette's work and has gone on
to be a continuing student and teacher of blackletter/gothic scripts. Vince's work is the last row,
showcasing his new comic series exclusively done in blackletter.
If you are interested in a hand-lettered design or addressed envelopes for your wedding, stationery, or special occasion, please

a special handlettered piece for you!
