Hidden Letters

I mentioned that we had watched the movie, Hidden Figures.  I really enjoyed the history and a glimpse into the lives of these amazing, women pioneers.

One clip that jumped out at me was the woman lettering John Glenn's capsule, Friendship 7. I wonder who the calligrapher was that did the lettering? And did she letter all the Mercury 7 capsules?


  1. I haven't seen this movie, may just go have a look. Thanks for sharing. Nice weekend!

  2. Hmm. That would be cool to know. I love how different people see different things 😀

  3. Loved the movie, but that went right over my head. Thanks for pointing it out. As a calligrapher, you think I would have been more tuned in. Hope to catch up next week. Enjoy the weekend.

  4. That's a great question. I missed that scene. Good job on zeroing in on it. Must come from having the exceptional eye of a calligrapher:)
    Have a great weekend.

  5. I've not seen the movie, but I've seen the REAL Liberty Bell 7, which was also a Mercury project. I'll have to try to find out, since this is an interesting concept.

    1. Must have been cool to see the Liberty Bell. I remember as a kid the excitement of watching the live rocket launches on TV.
