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, 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.

Presents Burgert's perspective on the role of form and function in calligraphy and writing, the history of the graphic form (symbol/writing/calligraphy), the need and development of cursive writing and alphabets.

Note that this is a photocopy reproduction. The quality of the illustrations vary, but all are photocopies.
