Calivin and calligraphy

I spent part of Saturday listening to Edouard Dommen speaking about Calvin, as Geneva gears up to next year's Calvin jubilee marking 500 years since the Reformer's birth. Edouard is a Quaker and an economist, yesterday he set Calvin's theology and activity within the social and economic context of Geneva in the 16th century.
As well as having worked on an English translation of André Biéler's fascinating book on Calvin's Economic and Social Thought, Edouard has put together a wonderful series of quotes from Calvin in four languages for a 2009 calendar which his wife Bridget has then interpreted in calligraphy. You can download the calendar here order printed copies here.
