This personal calligraphy by Mary Pratt, one of Canada's finest visual artists, is a powerful and compelling work. The reproductions of her grogeous paintings and the eloquence of her prose work well together. Yet there's a conundrum here, a mystery that lingered with me long after I finished reading. The book is dedicated to Pratt's sister and brother-in-law and "to my husband Christopher and my children for not laughing at me. The love, respect and generosity I received from them all is exceptional.

Mary Pratt is a Canadian painter whose speciality is still lifes which she creates in a highly realistic way using the light as one of her instruments. The painter found inspiration for her early artworks in everyday domestic scenes, in her kitchen, for example. Later, she began to depict people and her paintings became more sombre. The beginning of Mary Pratt’s professional artistic career can be counted from her debut solo exhibition in 1967 at the Art Gallery of the Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's city. In 1971, she took place at the exhibition organized in the Picture Loan Gallery of Toronto.

Mary Pratt: A Personal Calligraphy features Mary's own writings, drawn and adapted from her personal journals, the essays that she has written for numerous publications ranging from The Globe and Mail to The Glass Gazette, and the lectures that she has given at many public events. For the first time, Mary has written her own book in her own words, rather than rely on others to write about her. Treating both public and private issues, she writes of her childhood in Fredericton — her connection to her family, life in Salmonier as a young mother, her decision to pursue her own career as an artist, and her complicated relationship with her husband, Christopher. She writes about public issues — the death of Joey Smallwood, the 50th anniversary of Newfoundland's entry into Confederation, and the cod fishery. She writes about the images that interest her and influence her art, and the process of painting. Like her paintings, Pratt's writing packs a sucker punch. At first it appears to be a paean to the pleasures of house and home, until the more disturbing aspects subtly reveal themselves. Ironing shirts become an erotic act; a memory of visiting the local market with her grandmother conjures images of violence; dead chickens, meticulously plucked, and carcasses of cattle, meticulously flayed, suggest rituals of sacrifice.

In Spring of 2001, Mary Pratt was awarded the Newfoundland and Labrador Writers' Association prize for Non-fiction for A Personal Calligraphy.
