i did a few calligraphy classes in primary school, but as with most important things back then (like piano lessons, for instance) i didn’t take it seriously and never wanted to practice. of course now that i’m older i think, DRATS! you could have been a master calligrapher & classical pianist, dummy.

this tablecloth belonged to my grandmother, i think it’s from the sixties (mint condition). it’s pretty big, about 1.5m². i’m planning on having it framed because i love it so. made by the coca cola company! at least they’re good for something.
