john_decollibusI saw a few brilliant videos on YouTube on started goolging for this name “John DeCollibus”. His works are definitely masterpieces and would make any reasonably seasoned calligrapher look like an amateur. I especially have become a fan of the fantastic flourishes that he manages to create. This is just a few pieces of work that I nicked from this personal site, to prove my point …
