THE ENCHANTED LETTER with
Enchanted Letters are rooted in Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, but have a distinct Victorian flair. These flourished script letters are embellished with florals and foliate accents and can be combined with calligraphic script lettering. The designs are based on my work in offhand flourishing, floral design and Victorian needlework. I hope you become Enchanted with these graceful letters.
