    Visker & Scrivener

    Visker & Scrivener is a purveyor of fine writing quills, book, and other oddities inspired by times long since past. Behind each hand-crafted product is extensive research in the history of writing, a love of creating, and a desire to encourage artists by providing beautiful and functional tools of the trade.

    With a background in printmaking and leather work, Visker’s choice of book-binding was a natural option when diving into the world of art festivals. He progressed successfully at small, local festivals in the Houston area, while keeping an eye out for new and intriguing ideas. Meanwhile, in an unrelated parallel universe, Julie had given herself an ultimatum of either actively practicing calligraphy or getting rid of that instructional book she had been hoarding since middle school. Inevitably, her insistence that Visker make a “pretty feather quill” for her to practice with and Visker’s propensity to impress her with his art work, led to a new product line and the creation of ‘Visker & Scrivener’s Quill’s, Books, and Oddities’.

    Six years later the team has participated annually at The Texas Renaissance Festival (Houston), Sherwood Forest Festival (Austin), and Dickens on the Strand (Galveston), and maintains, with the help of their apprentice, Taylor, a store-front/workshop in Galveston’s Historic District.

    This Etsy shop is their opportunity to inspire creativity and revive the art of traditional penmanship and illustration with the rest of the world. Welcome.

      With super-human creativity, Taylor is able to take any task thrown at her, master it, and repeat it (a ga-zillion times, if needed). A sharp wit and keen eye for detail have made her the perfect addition to the V&S team.
