Come by Mota Italic this Saturday, July 6th, for the closing party of Word Jazz. Berlin’s newest up and coming calligraphic artist Drury Brennan will be on hand showing off his pen prowess. He’ll be happy to write something for you to take home. Bring an old tote bag, shirt, or boring old paper and he’ll make it more beautiful for you. Donations happily accepted.
