The Calligrapher's Dictionary.
Would you believe that a writer could come up with more than 1,500
definitions of words and terms that clarify and extend understanding of
calligraphy? Author/Calligrapher Rose Folsom does just that in this
comprehensive complement to calligraphy. Beyond simple definitions, this
book defines terms, provides biographies of prominent figures in
calligraphy history, informs about the derivations of letters, and tells
of lettering inks and other media, tools and techniques. Beyond a
technical manual, this book has value for art historians, graphic
designers, students and teachers. Each page is enlivened with drawings,
photographs and/or examples of letterforms and scripts. Strongly
recommended for high school and university levels.
