    I’m very pleased and impressed with this website. Father Catich had a profound influence on many lives worldwide. This is an excellent way to honor him and share his gifts to the world. Thank you for doing this.
  2. I agree Linda! It is very important that our generation tells Father Catich’s story. His hand touched all our lives and it is up to all of us who knew him, who studied with him, and listened to him to tell the story.Spread the word!

  1. This is a fantastic resource, thank you so much! I've discovered Father Catich through his monumental work, The Origin of the Serif (I am a calligraphy enthusiast). I am now struggling to learn the Imperial Roman Capitals with a brush; do you happen to have more of these really big resolution pictures of his brush letters? They show the ductus very well (being so large), and would be of tremendous help for my study. Thanks again!
