Description : No need for copper or plates to achieve the distinctive calligraphic script of eighteenth-century Europe ― just a pen, ink, and this comprehensive workbook will do. Master calligrapher Dick Jackson explains the basic strokes for almost all letters of the copperplate alphabet. Simple instructions and examples introduce the swirls, flourishes, strikings, and thick and thin strokes that make copperplate calligraphy a source of pleasure for the practitioner and a delight to the reader. A historical introduction traces the growth of copperplate from its roots in the French ronde of the seventeenth century, to its adaptation by English clerks into their copybooks, and the development of the style known as round hand. In addition, guide sheets and instructions for individual letters and numbers offer aspiring calligraphers a practical approach to this enduring art form.

Description : A richly illustrated examination of the primary purpose of writing, relating the ability to put down information in a permanent form to the overall concept of literacy. With the growth of information technology, this beautifully illustrated book re-examines the concept and purpose of writing, and questions the long cherished idea that the alphabet stands at the apex of a hierarchy towards which all 'proper' forms of writing must by necessity progress. The author asserts that the primary purpose of writing lies in its ability to store and transmit information essential to the social, economic and political survival of a particular group. Writing, in whatever form, allows the individual to interact with the group, to acquire an amount of knowledge that far outweighs the scope of memory (oral traditions), and to be free to manipulate this knowledge and arrive at new conclusions. Many theories that have so far been taken as proof rest merely on speculation. Writing has been looked at through the narrowed vision of specialists and needs to be examined from a different angle -- an angle that looks at writing not as an intellectual achievement that in itself furthered civilization, but as an essential part of the political infrastructure of a society. Complete with more than 80 photographs and illustrative examples of writing through the ages, this book provides an attractive and straightforward entrance to the subject. It contains a network of references leading the reader towards further information, and most entries are enriched with bibliographical notes.

Description : Consideration is given to the possibility of providing a computer and a cathode ray printer with an unlimited repertory of characters. Digitalizations are presented for mathematic, cartographic, and calligraphic characters. The repertory is available to any computer through FORTRAN IV programming. The latest cathode ray printers are almost adequate for the preparation of mathematical reports. Some progress has been made toward development of a mnemonic code for the recording of a mathematical text on tape. (Author).

Description : A basic manual on medieval illumination providing both a historical overview and practical how-to guide. The book is divided into two parts, "the first dealing with the history, definition, and characteristics of illumination, with particular reference to manuscripts owned by the British Museum, and the second providing practical directions on how to illuminate manuscripts, an overview of colors and how to make them, and an array of handy “tricks” detailing the many different techniques one could use to make modern manuscripts look more authentic. Freeman also included individual tables listing the dates, titles, interesting points, and museum locations of manuscripts from England, France, Italy, Germany, and the Near East to help his readers find for themselves actual examples on public display at the British Museum that could be used as historical and technical references in comparison to their own artistic efforts--even going so far as to point out that, despite popular belief to the contrary, female enthusiasts were also welcome at the British Museum, pointing out in the text's final note that "there are seats specially set apart for ladies" in the Museum's reading room"--from an online description, "Delamotte's 1860 Primer of the Art of Illumination" by the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library of The Ohio State University.
