One forthcoming piece of Buddhist calligraphy will be Dhammapada 204 printed from a true woodcut. The Dhammapada is part of the Pāli Canon & is a collection of verses on various themes. It’s full of pithy material and many verses have a quirky, cranky quality. Each verse is 2-4 lines.
The text will be in Pāli in rotunda gothic, which is a departure from my usual pointed pen writing. I’ve always liked that style, and its bold blocky letters won’t be dinimished by the presence of the striations and strong grain in this bit of wood.
