This image was designed by Vernon in response to a request for an image to be printed on the front of a brochure for the Calligraphy Society of Victoria. The brochures carried the name of the Society and contact details with the words "New members welcome" in white on the black blot.

Many prospective members expressed the feeling that after viewing this image they felt that their novice status would not make them less welcome to the calligraphic flock.
