Tablet Weaving by Linda Hendrickson: An original pangram woven in letters based on Uncial

a tablet-woven pangram with letters based on Uncial

The pangram "the monk dyed prized flax and wove big quilted jackets" is one of several that I made up and wove for my book Please Weave a Message. A pangram is a sentence that contains every letter of the alphabet ("the quick brown fox..."), and is used to show the "look" of a script or font.

These letters are based on the script Uncial, which is known as the "early Christian alphabet". I graphed these letters for tablet weaving, using as my model the version of Uncial found in Written Letters: 33 Alphabets for Calligraphers Expanded and Revised by Jacqueline Svaren.

There are 34 tablets for the letters, and 10 tablets on each side for the borders. Perle cotton, 2-1/2" x 55" plus fringe. Woven in 2002.
