By Hans-Joachim Burgert. 2nd edition. Translated by Brody Neuenschwander. (1989) 2002. Approx. 177pp. 8.5"x11". Paper Spiral.



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.

BR30. Cotman Round WC Brush
Cotman Round Watercolor Brush.

Synthetic brush that is slightly stiffer than sable. Recommended by Lisa Engelbrecht; she especially likes the #8. The secret of the Cotman Bushes, from Winsor & Newton, lies in the fibers. By blending fibers of differing thickness, we achieve the three most important qualities sought by the artist. The thicker fibers contribute strength and spring, while the thinner fibers improve color carrying capacity (which have recently been improved by 50%). The two fibers together retain their point, time after time.

Specify size.
