There are also books on subjects that compliment calligraphy like:

    • celtic designs
    • bookbinding
    • marbling
    • papermaking
    • illumination
    • drawing
    • painting

There are also regular issues from other calligraphy clubs and magazines that feature calligraphy.

Library Policy

Members of WOC may peruse the library at Write On Calligraphers meetings. Books are checked out for a period of two months and are due at the next regular meeting.

We request that you return materials promptly so that others may enjoy them. If no one is waiting for an item, it is possible to renew for an additional two-month period. If items are not returned as requested, we expect to be reimbursed for the cost of replacement, plus handling charges.

A list of the library resources is printed in the Members Directory.


WOC gratefully accepts donations of books, periodicals and DVDs in the calligraphy, lettering, paper and book arts genres.   They will be used to increase the library size and quality or for book sales and silent auctions, with funds used to purchase additional media.  If you are downsizing your own collection, please consider such a donation.  Contact our current WOC Librarian at  Add “Library” to the subject line.  Thank you.
