Hello! Please take a look at my new Youtube channel — and click Subscribe to see new posts as they are produced!Â Looking forward to hearing how you like the idea, and happy to have your advice and suggestions, of course!Â Love, Jane
The first volume of Jane’s fantasy trilogy “Return to FaĂ«rie”, MOONRISE, is now available as an e-book! Please visit amazon.com to order your kindle-version. The next two books will shortly be available also… (and an audio version is also in the works!) Thank you, and wishing you an enjoyable and enchanted voyage into the wondrous realm of FaĂ«rie!
The new Module Six has just been added to Jane’s on-line classes, and this time we look at the whole alphabet in the style of letter-forms known as Versals.Â Each of the six classes studies a group of letters with similar features and then a step-by-step project for creating a beautiful illuminated initial.
If you sign-up for just one module, you pay 16â‚¬ for one year’s access, BUT if you decide to have a year’s access to ALL SIX the price is only 65â‚¬ — less than 11â‚¬ per module (each one with six video-lessons and many handouts to support your studies!).
If you are already registered for all of the five modules available up to this date, you will have Module Six added to your year’s package automatically for free.
Don’t delay!Â Take a look at www.calligrafee.com/school and enjoy this newest series of lessons which will guide you in the creation of beautifully decorated letters in a variety of styles!
The latest module in the CalligraFĂ©e School is now online and not to be missed: Celtic Interlace and Illumination!Â You will learn how to create all sorts of knotwork, animal-interlace (zoĂ¶morphics), circular knots, spirals, letters in the form of intertwined animals, a short word in Celtic illuminated initials, and even a small Â« carpet-page Â» of a Celtic cross.
And launched with this new module is a change in the registration for the School:Â You now have TWO options when you join Janeâ€™s fun and delightful classes online:
- (1) You can sign-up to have access to ALL FIVE modules (six video classes each, with handouts to download for each class) for just 65â‚¬,
—Â ORÂ —
- (2) You can take just one module for 16â‚¬.Â Both options give you access for one full year from the date you register.
NB: If you are already a student of the School, contact Jane or Michel by email to receive a link for a special rate for ongoing students to avail of the first option.
Hop over to the School page to take a closer look at Module 5 and to choose your option for registration.Â And why not offer one or more modules as a creative Christmas giftÂ ?Â !
(By the way, the mini-module on drawing Unicorns remains independent from the rest of the School:Â you can take the three video classes of Â« How to Draw Unicorns Â» – for only 5â‚¬ – in combination with either registration optionâ€¦Â And without a doubt Unicorns make a nice gift too, and a good introduction to the style of Janeâ€™s classesÂ !)
See you soon in the CalligraFĂ©e On-Line Art SchoolÂ !Â !Â !
Recently, Jane had the honour to be asked to create an illuminated version of the 23rd Psalm to be presented to Joshua Stafford, the new organist of Riverside Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville, Florida, USA. Â What a delightful commission!Â This is Janeâ€™s favourite Psalm (itâ€™s number 22 in the Psautier EnluminĂ© de LigugĂ©), and it was an added pleasure that the page included the opening stave of the musical setting of this Psalm by H. Walford Davies.Â Â The young organist taking up this post at Riverside Church, Joshua Stafford, is a brilliant musician who has already won awards for his mastery of this complicated instrument, the organ!Â You can learn more about Joshua here:
These photos show you the â€śscrollâ€ť created by Jane, and presented to Joshua on the 25th of April, 2021 (the 4th Sunday of Easter, traditionally dedicated to the â€śGood Shepherdâ€ť) as he began his appointment as Director of Music Ministries and Organist.
My fantasy novel, Return to FaĂ«rie, is now completed — and I am so excited to share it with you!Â Â I hope youâ€™ll be eager to read it and to give me your comments, suggestions and insights.
The trilogy is available to order directly from my website, on the page called â€śCalligrafee shopâ€ť. There you can also find all of my other books, and you can — of course — order the three books of Return to FaĂ«rie separately too, if you prefer (but there is a discount when ordering the three together).
Please go to:Â Â www.calligrafee.com/shop/return-to-faerie/
A separate website has also been created for the book, so you can visit and learn more about the story here: www.return-to-faerie.com
Thank you for supporting this â€śenchantedâ€ť project by ordering a copy of my novel, and also by sharing this information with your own contacts. The ripples will spread out in ever-widening circles, Iâ€™m sure, and thereby my story will reach many readers who will enjoy this tale of wonder and beauty, peace and adventure, joy and hope! (There are plenty of magical creatures to delight you as well: not only fairies but also flying-horses, dragons, mermaids, wondrous harps and wise trees, and — of course — unicorns!).
Thank you, once again, for all your interest in my projects and for your help in spreading the word about this new book!
Greetings to you allÂ !
You can give great pleasure to family and friends with this very special gift. A present which is uplifting, beautiful, meditative and original. The Illuminated Psalter which I produced for the Abbey of LigugĂ© is a work of art that will bring delight for many years to comeâ€¦
Beyond the spiritual message and timeless poetry of the Psalms (in the French translation of the monks of LigugĂ©), you will be offering a book filled with colour and creativity, rich illuminations and over 300 pages of dancing calligraphic script!
Signed and numbered copies of the â€śLimited Editionâ€ť are still available for purchase. You will find them in various bookshops, including the shop at the Abbey of LigugĂ© and alsoÂ the Abbey aux Dames in Saintes and the Abbey of Trizay, and in Paris at the Artisanat Monastique. You may also order directly from Janeâ€™s website, and Jane will be pleased to include a personalised dedication, if you wish.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Happy Unicorn-Art !
Jane’s Illuminated Psalter (Le Psautier EnluminĂ© de LigugĂ©) was the subject of an article in the American calligraphy and book-binding journal Bound & Lettered (from John Neal Bookseller).Â The issue came out early in December, 2019 (volume 17.1) and is still available to order from John Neal.Â Do have a look — it’s a lovely article!
