is the acronym for the Australasian Lettering Link and is an email
link between calligraphy societies around Australia and New Zealand.
'ALL' has a representative from most calligraphy societies and groups,
formal and informal in these areas.
intention of ALL is to keep the channels of communication open between
societies. ALL helps in spreading information by way of representatives,
who pass on valuable information to their respective committees
and to publish for their members' use in whatever way they see fit.
Information such as planned workshops, exhibitions, travellers to
and fro, international and national events such as the visit of
the Book of Kells to Australia. We have representatives from Tasmania,
to Central Queensland, from Auckland to Perth.
representatives are elected (they have all volunteered so far) by
their committee and can change according to individual society's
interests. It is a relaxed informal group just intent on getting
the messages through.
is not an 'umbrella group', nor a chat line, nor does ALL have a
journal or newsletter. Many good strong societies are already doing
this throughout the country.
calligrapher Gemma Black set ALL in motion in October 1998 after
a mailing campaign to all known clubs and societies around Australasia.
We are always keen to pick up other representatives for areas we
do not cover. If your area, club or society is not covered by the
Australasian Lettering Link then please make contact with us.
