Dr. Joseph M. Vitolo is both a penmanship historian & a Calligrapher. He has spent extensive time and effort to rediscover and document the almost forgotten history and contributions of American Penmen/Calligraphers from ‘The Golden Age of Ornamental Penmanship’. Dr. Vitolo will explore this rich history as well as the remarkable men and women that contributed to it. In addition, a selection of remarkable original specimens dating from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s will be available for viewing.
The talk is free and open for public, it is organized by Summit Scribes Calligraphy Guild.
