B2614. Codici 1/Ingmire
Codici 1.
Edited by Thomas Ingmire. 2003. 64pp. 8.5"x11". Paper.

Ingmire is best known for his expressive -- and often non-legible -- calligraphic works. This illustrated notebook draws primarily from Ingmire's teaching. It presents the assignments, support materials, and the works created by the students, as well as images and brief discussions of his own recent works that relate to the program. Topics include: inventing new forms; lettering as drawing; the expressive line; the shape and space of writing; the word as image; Hans-Joachim Burgert -- the calligraphic line; the space of writing -- the ditchling project. The emphasis is on a visual rather than a verbal message.
