About The Artist: "Bernard Maisner is an internationally renowned master calligrapher and stationer. His name is synonymous with luxury and the most high-profile society events and special occasions. With more than 30 years experience, Maisner's custom calligraphy is instantly recognizable and his stationery sets are unparalleled worldwide."
How He Began: "His interest in lettering began early, while he was still in grade school. Initially self-taught, Maisner began doing traditional italic and gothic lettering that he copied out of books.
“My father would come home with papers and inks and encourage me to practice,” he says of those first attempts at what would eventually become a focal point of his career."
The Artist Today & His Work: "Maisner is a contemporary artist whose paintings are exhibited in galleries and museums. He brings his talents as an artist to all aspects of stationery. The signature Maisner Script is a masterful modernized blend of Spencerian and Copperplate writing with intricate flourishes and beautiful letterforms. His International Collection of Italian, French and Americana lettering styles infuse elements of writing from different countries and eras; the Italian style was originally created for the fashion designer Valentino.
In 2000, Maisner began his foray into social calligraphy, creating elaborately embellished styles of writing for wedding stationery, party and event invitations, place cards, custom menu cards, and personal stationery. Hailed by W magazine as "the New York calligrapher" and by Town & Country Weddings as a "renowned virtuoso," he set a new and entirely unique standard for the world of social stationery and calligraphy."
