Acts of Parliament to remain being printed on Vellum

Hoorah! Many thanks to Patricia Lovett for spearheading the campaign for Acts of Parliament to continue to be printed on vellum. Calligraphers like myself canvassed our MP's to vote to continue using vellum. On 20 April the debate resulted in resounding approval for this tradition to continue.The reasons are multitude : it's longevity, it is a green product, making vellum is a heritage craft, it is a quality substrate to work on etc. All my vellum comes from William Cowley in Newport Pagnell and I am proud to say I have been using their vellum since 1995. Long may this tradition continue! You can read more about it here :
