Esther Inglis

    Esther Inglis (married name Kello) (1571—1624) was a Scottish miniaturist, embroiderer, calligrapher, translator and writer. Of Huguenot origin (her surname was originally spelled Langlois), her family had escaped to Scotland to escape persecution. Learning calligraphy from her mother, she served as official scribe to her husband.
    Inglis produced about 60 known calligraphic manuscripts. These were bound as miniature books.
