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

268 editions published between 1906 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,153 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

Duino elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke( Book )

1 edition published in 1931 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Completed in 1922, the same year as the publication of Eliot's The Waste Land, the Elegies constitute a magnificent godless poem in their rejection of the transcendent and their passionate celebration of the here and now. Troubled by our insecure place in this world and our fractured relationship with death, the Elegies are nevertheless populated by a throng of vivid and affecting figures: acrobats, lovers, angels, mothers, fathers, statues, salesman, actors and children. This bilingual edition offers twenty-first century readers a new opportunity to experience the power of Rilke's enduring masterpiece."--Jacket

The Calligraphy revival : 1906-2016( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The word calligraphy comes from the Greek kaligraphia-kallos "beauty" + graphein "to write." It is an art with a long and noble history, going back centuries and spanning many cultures. Exhibitions and collections of Asian, Islamic, and Medieval art have always included examples of beautiful writing, yet modern Western calligraphy has seldom been recognized as an art form.00This catalogue aims to correct that oversight. Curator Jerry Kelly, an award-winning book designer, type designer, typographer, and calligrapher, presents major examples of calligraphic art by over 80 artists spanning the years 1906-2016, demonstrating that in the computer age the art of beautiful writing not only lives, but thrives. 00Exhibition: Grolier Club, New York, USA (17.05.-29.07.2017)
