Abstract calligraphic art - Denise Lach

I mentioned how this book inspired me to write my letter 'J' recently and promised to write some more. There is so much to look at and think about with this book that it will have to happen in small chunks.

I have chosen here three of the page spreads from Denise Lach's book that astounded me and made me buy it without even really looking at it in too much detail.  I love taking photographs of texture; often close-up and showing the detail of something that might otherwise be missed.

I had never in my mind made the link between my texture photos and their potential to inspire abstract calligraphic art. Now of course, I wonder how one earth I missed it and can see so many fabulous opportunities opening up.

I am totally inspired by this mark making and the inspiration for it. What do you think?
