Cover of Book by Timothy Botts with sample of his calligraphy

Timothy Botts is a noted calligrapher and illustrator. He has published several books containing calligraphic inscriptions of biblical passages. He has taught seminars at such places as Regent College and College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, Illinois. He is a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University.[1]

Botts is noted for the great diversity of hands (a technical term for different styles or fonts of calligraphy) he has mastered. For example, the cover of his book Doorposts has the title displayed with each letter in a different hand, giving a demonstration of nine different hands just on the cover. He has a preference for illustrating biblical quotations as decorative and inspirational pieces and has published several books of such works. However, he has done other projects, for example, a poster for a business group promoting quality and productivity, doing each quote in a different hand.
