Shipped quickly, and very happy with item. It is hard to find Dragonlance stuff, so thank you!

About

Writing the awfully bad awfully well

The vast majority of available calligraphy is either biblical quotations or Irish proverbs. But I believe that there are people who would love to have more nerdy things in calligraphy to hang in their homes, whether that's a "no admittance except on party business" sign to hang on their fence and display their love of the Lord of the Rings or a little sign for their kitchen reminding them that "the cake is a lie," as we learn in Portal.

It started when someone noticed the quotations Ian was writing to practice calligraphy and layout, and suggested that he start an etsy store.

So he did.

And here we are, setting down in calligraphy some of the least likely things.
