About The Nittany Quill

Talus collaborated in 1997 with Joy Rodgers-Mernin, owner of The Nittany Quill, to produce a collection of memory books featuring Joys’ calligraphy, enduring quotes, and beautifully illustrated watercolor borders.

Joy began her art career at a young age while on her childhood dairy farm in central Pennsylvania. Noticing how she could create beautiful colors by blending food colorings in icings for her mayonnaise cakes, she went on to develop her early color theory at Mercersburg Academy and graduated with a degree in Fine Art from Smith College, where she also studied calligraphy. Her love of bright color and the natural beauty of the outdoors is the inspiration for her art and prose.

Located in State College, Pennsylvania, The Nittany Quill was established in 1984 by Joy and her husband Keith as a fine stationery shop dedicated to the paper and writing experience. The quaint shop offers an illustrated assortment of greeting cards, boxed notes, journals, gifts and framed calligraphy quotes. You can visit the site at www.thenittanyquill.com
