"Lilac Wine" featuring Bill Kemp's calligraphy

We are simply beside ourselves in wonder over this video, The Cinematic Orchestra's contribution to the celebration surrounding the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martens. Of course, any arrangement of "Lilac Wine" would be beautiful, but the pairing of the song with lyrical animations of Spencerian script and flourishes takes it to a completely new level.

And, can you believe it, the calligraphy which opens and closes the video is by none other than Castle in the Air's own Bill Kemp. If you love this Spencerian fantasy world half as much as we do, you'll want to fall down the rabbit hole at any of Bill's calligraphy classes this month.

How is it that Bill didn't get credited for this beautiful work??? I was wondering whose it was...

To see Bill's credit for this piece you can visit this page on the making of the video.

We are very proud of him and his work!!
