Tabletop Exhibit- Bible Versals

What exactly are versals? Often seen in ancient manuscripts, versals are large embellished letters with elaborate flourishes, curves and ornate patterns, that set off a piece of calligraphy work. A modern twist on versal creation has taken place in calligrapher Joyce Teta’s Encore class. Starting with a small Gideon’s bible the students utilized their calligraphy skills in creating their own interpretation of a versal. This exhibit showcases the resulting 26 artist’s books highlighting students’ creative use and interpretation of versals.
