B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word
B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word. 2013. 264pp. 8.75"x11.25". Hardcover

Free Media Mail Shipping (USA only). Media Mail takes 2 to 3 weeks depending upon location.

A profusely illustrated, full-color retrospective of John Stevens' work with letterforms. Includes calligraphy and lettering -- artworks, personal work, experimental work, commissioned work -- as well as graphic work and type design. His body of work spans paper to stone, books to walls, hand lettering to type and the digital realm.

In the text, John presents his approach to a design or work and his thoughts on letterforms, and continues with a discussion on tools, teaching, design and writing in general. Using his body of work as example, he makes the case that divisions between fine arts and graphic arts are mostly irrelevant.


Please visit the Scribe page on www.JohnNealBooks.com for a video by John Stevens on the book, a sample spread, and a book review by the Carolina Lettering Arts Society here: www.johnnealbooks.com/Scribe

Free Media Mail Shipping to USA addresses. If you need the book sooner, there will be a $3 rush ship charge added to your order. Media Mail generally takes upwards of 2 weeks or more to be delivered.
