3187, B2785-P. Manuel Neri: Artist Books/The Collaborative Process by Bruce Nixon, Robert Flynn Johnson. 194pp. 10"x12". Hardcover. $60.00 Paper $40.00
This catalog presents seven artists books. The first four are collaborations: artist, printer, photographer, binger and are produced in limited editions. Of most the interest to calligraphers are the last three books -- each a single copy original. These books present poems by Pablo Nerda (Ode to A Beautiful Nude, Morning, Afternoon & To Night and the Truth and Poetry). Thomas Ingmire has written out each poem in italic -- both in English and Spanish. It's a beautiful volume.

If you are interested in his writing or his work, check out:
B900. Words of Risk: The Art of Thomas Ingmire by Michael Gullick. 1989. 90 pp. 65 illus. 9"x12". Paper. Retail Price $25.00. Sale $16.99.
Using words as subjects, Ingmire's work has progressed from the transcription of texts to complex multilayered visual statements. His juxtaposition of and interplay between words and images challenges the traditional role of calligraphy as "decorated writing." The book describes the work and working process of Ingmire and reproduces virtually all of his major pieces, many in full color.
B2614. Codici 1 edited by Thomas Ingmire. 2003. 64 pp. Paper. $22.95
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 students, as well as images and brief discussion 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 Burget: The Calligraphic Line and The space of Writing: The Ditchling Project. The emphasis of his work is on a visual rather than a verbal message.

N30. Folded Ruling Pen
Folded Ruling Pen

Introduced at Letterforum in 1995, this innovative lettering tool has been popular ever since. Use it to produce tight "brush lettering" with a pen or for wild, fun, expressive lettering. These are the originals made by Matthew Coffin and highly praised by Carl Rohrs and Peter Thornton as superior to others that are available.

Peter Thornton has his students use our Polishing Paper (S107) to lightly abrade the outer and inner surfaces of the Folded Pen. This allows the ink to spread out on the pen instead of beading up.

Pentel Brush Fountain Pen / Pentel Pocket Brush.
