B3244. Calligraphy / Lach
Calligraphy by Denise Lach. 2009. 192pp. 9.25" x 10.25". Paperback

This striking and original book is a gallery of Lach’s calligraphic work and techniques. She presents the tools she uses in her work, each with illustrative examples: broad-edge nibs, Automatic pens, Pilot Parallel pens, music nibs (for writing the notes, not the 5-line staff the notes are placed on), plus reed pens & bamboo pens, felt-tip pens, and brushes. There are multi-page sections on using the ruling pen, cola pen (made from an aluminum soda can), and pipettes as lettering tools. Lach briefly discusses - using visual examples - line weight, letter and line spacing, rotation, setting a rhythm, pen position & speed, variations on a theme, organic shapes, concentric compositions, serifs, and depth & density. Then you see how she creates letterforms using stamping with unconventional materials. Examples of stamping include a row of glue-together toothpicks, sharpened sticks, an ordinary cork, foam rubber and sponge. She shows examples of combining tools and techniques in one piece. Throughout the book, with calligraphic compositions from her hand and the photos that inspired them, she invites us to look closely at details and textures in nature, expand our powers of observation and find creative ideas in the world around us.
