hi, jordan –
how is this light box used for calligraphy? very curious…
love your blog!

Professional calligraphers use a light box so they can see a template (straight lines) through the envelope or paper.
Since I’m a beginner I will also use it for tracing so I can correctly learn the hand.

As my mom is a calligrapher, my dad made her a light box using a glass fronted shallow cabinet and putting in a lightbulb! Cheap, easy and effective.

My calligraphy instructor had the wood and plexiglass frames made and sold them to us for $10. We had to then go to Home Depot and buy the light. I cannot imagine doing calligraphy without it! Once you have one you’ll be amazed you were able to live without! So worth the money.
