B15. Written, Drawn & Decorated Letters


B15. Written, Drawn & Decorated Letters -- Book List

Recommended:
B1672. Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green by Michael Wilcox. $24.95Helpful, if heavy on text.

Peter uses the painted initials of Adolf Bernd as inspiration for this class.
CR7.2 Calligraphy Review 7.2 $11.00. Has a 8-page article with 5 examples in color on Bernd.
B2081.Uncommon Numbers: A Sourcebook for Artists.$14.95 A Bernd piece is reproduced on the front and the back.

Peter recommends this book to all his students. However, it does not apply directly to this class.
B2052. Art Spirit $19.95

While it doesn't apply directly to his classes at Letters Mingle Souls, Peter also recommends Libres & egaux by Denis Lach (B2915, $55.00) for her varied layouts and refined color palette. This French published book has been difficult to come by.
