Writing, Illuminating, and Lettering
By Edward Johnston
One of the founders of modern calligraphy, Edward Johnston regarded lettering, writing, and illuminating as not only desirable ends in themselves but also as practical avenues to mastery of typography, decoration, and design.
In this classic, profusely illustrated handbook (originally published in 1906), Johnston distilled his expertise into a series of easy-to-follow lessons that will benefit any student of calligraphy, book design, or art.
This new edition features new formatting, re-digitized artwork, increased readability and all you would expect from a modern published book.
Writing, Illuminating, and Lettering continues to be an invaluable research guide for those interested in typography, calligraphy, and any other practice involving writing and letterforms.
