A7. Gestural Writing -- Book List

B2830. Finding the Flow by Gina Jonas.$24.95

"Beautiful examples are found in a lot of books, but I would recommend the book of my teaching master Brody Neuenschwander: "doe dit tot mijn gedachtenis" (Jezuswoorden). I have also found the Scripsit (26.1) issue featuring the work of Julian Waters very instructive. And of course the little Character book by John Stevens. Finally, the black-and white issue (issue 19.2) of Letter Arts Review from a couple of years ago."

Jezuswoorden is not presently available in North America, but a book on the full range of Brody's work, Textasy (B2917, $90) was recently published and limited number of copies will be available at LMS. You may pre-order a copy.

At Cheerio this spring, Yves mentioned the work of Elmo van Singerland, a Dutch lettering artist. Scripsit 19.2 (B2878. $12.00) has four pages of his work, along with that of Hermann Kilian, Sherry Bringham, Jose Mendoza Y Almeida & Tony Forster.

The Scripsit 26.1 is sold out, but Scripsit 21.2 (B2881, $12) is still available with lettering by Julian, John Stevens, Ward Dunham and Michael Clark. Pens & Protocol (B3016, $28) has a section of Julian Waters' calligraphy.

B2362. The Character. $20.00.
John Steven's forthcoming book (B2982 -- John Stevens: Calligraphy, Design, Lettering Art) can be reserved at the pre-pub price of $29.95 until June 30, 2008 (the book is due to ship in the fall/winter of 2008.)

Thomas Hoyer Ruling Pen, Haff Ruling Pen (629 U)

Thomas Hoyer uses this fine-crafted, traditional ruling pen for expressive lettering. 5"overall length; nickel-plated tool steel alloy. Both Thomas and this ruling pen come from Germany. He has introduced the tool as a writing instrument at several conferences and workshops in the USA and Europe. This ruling pen was sold by HAFF as their number 629U. These are now coming from the manufacturer, a small family firm, which has given us more options for handles.

This ruling pen is now available in a range of handle materials. The Black Aladdinite has more heft than the Black Plastic (The writing part is identical in each.)

*Aladdinite is a sustainable manufactured material made using milk protein. It was invented in the early 20th century and was used for a wide variety of items (including jewelry) before the invention of plastic derived from petroleum. It is most commonly used now for buttons.
