Writing & illuminating, & lettering by Edward Johnston( Book )

141 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crafts of writing, illuminating and lettering offer a wide field for the ingenious and careful craftsman and open the way to a variety of rewarding occupations apart from their very great educational value. In this superbly comprehensive volume, these three skills are clearly and fascinatingly explained with hundreds of illustrations and diagrams. The book is planned as a guide to models and methods for letter-craftsmen and students, especially those who cannot see the actual processes carried out and who may not have access to collections of MSS. Edward Johnston traces the development of writing, giving us insight into the construction of letters, and offers valuable advice on the acquisition of a formal or "book" hand. His detailed explanation of the theory and development of illustration shows how the practice of this art is one of the most simple and complete ways of acquiring a knowledge of the elements of design and decoration. The world of lettering is also fully explored together with the Roman alphabet and its derivatives. The innumerable practical applications of lettering -- most important in the making of books -- make the study of lettercraft not only absorbing but imperative. - Back cover

Men and women by Robert Browning( Book )

5 editions published in 1908 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sous le signe d'Eros. L'auteure vise à écrire "au plus loin" dans ce qu'elle sait de l'amour, du désir d'amour "qui décide de nos vies, de nos épreuves et de nos travaux". Elle aborde les sujets dont elle n'avait presque rien dit dans ##Parole de femme##: la sexualité, l'amour, le "corps féminin cherchant l'autre de son corps". Un essai à la fois assez cérébral et poétique (le style). Pour le critique des ##Notes bibliographiques## il s'agit d'un "hymne infiniment narcissique à une féminité qui se garde"
