Summer at Saint-Antoine 2014 Part 2

P1000663Ah, dusk. Twilight, gloaming…crepuscular lighting. I haven’t found a time of day when Saint-Antoine is not photogenic.
Expressive majuscules…Beginning with looking at examples of simple capitals, and a variety of layouts…
P1000573P1000576Looking at some uncommon majuscule forms from manuscripts…
P1080258Everyone hard at work, Jacinthe
P1000633Magali…

P1000634Françoise…P1000640 Jean…P1000641David…P1000642 Marie-Claude…P1000644That’s not everyone. Joan and Anne escaped photographic documentation of their participation this week. But they can be seen in “Part I”.

Saint-Antoine has been a part of younger daughter Caroline’s life since she was three (and before that, the Community of the Arche of Bonnecombe). So of course it’s where she and her American sister choose to get together whenever they can. Working in the vegetable gardens is more their thing than calligraphy.
