CLAS Art and the Letter Exhibition

The Art and the Letter Exhibition is shown each year, as part of the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society's AGM day at the British Library. Every member is encouraged to enter a piece of work, no matter what their standard. The submission of a piece is free and is open to all calligraphers and lettering artists. Topics are set the previous summer for a closing date usually in early spring. Each entry receives a comment from a team of renowned calligraphers. Calligraphers whose work is thought to be really special receive a special mention and are presented with a certificate.
