Around 1980, I became fascinated with calligraphy, especially with the medieval styles and manuscripts. Learning some of the styles - better called "scripts" - and experimenting with my own versions soon followed.

W. John Cocke was born in Asheville, N. C., in 1937. He was fortunate to have parents who instilled in him a love of the arts and sciences, and he is a noted astrophysicist. He has been using calligraphy as a vehicle for self-expression since about 1975. His skills in this area support his love for the written word and the graphic arts in physics and mathematics.







He welcomes comments and questions about his work.
