“I believe it is the gift of the artist
to give a face to that which is
spirit.” – Timothy R. Botts
Timothy R. Botts has a BFA in graphic design from Carnegie-Mellon University during which time he apprenticed in calligraphy with Arnold Bank. His work reaches back to letterforms as old as first century and combines contemporary graphic design principles with them in order to express the meaning of great words. For 40 years he designed more than 600 books for Tyndale House Publishers near Chicago where he was senior art director before retiring in 2012. Ten books of his own work are published, including Doorposts, Messiah, and a Bible illustrated in his calligraphy.
