There’s something so entirely special about beautifully hand-lettered calligraphy, and Laura Hooper does some of the best in the biz! Seeing her gorgeous calligraphy work always brings a smile to our face. We were thrilled to get a behind-the-scenes look at her office—and for the opportunity to get to know this amazing woman a bit better!
How did you get started doing calligraphy?
My mom taught me basic calligraphy when I was a young girl, and then I started working at a caricature shop when I was 12, writing names in what would maybe resemble Copperplate. I did that for years, and when I was about 22, my best friend asked me to address her wedding envelopes. The rest was history! I’ve actually shared more details about my story on my blog as well.
