Odyssey Conference Class Listing

A8: EPOCH, EPISTLE & EPIPHANY: Thinking in Threes


Laurie does not have a required book list for the class, but names these books as great references:
B2811. The Art and Craft of Hand Lettering by Annie Cicale.
B2783. The Calligraphic Line by Hans-Joachim-Burgert.
In the Garden by Jennifer Bartlett. Out-of-print
B1772. Free Play by Stephen Nachmanovitch.
B3176. You Must Revise Your Life by William Stafford.
Laurie Doctor: "I think of this book as a kind of handbook for calligraphers, artists, poets and teachers. Stafford demonstrates how our work happens not only in the room we are in, but and also in the larger context of ideas, attitudes, and the invisible exchange with the muse."
Denise Lach: Libres & Egaux. Out-of-print. However, Denise Lach has a new book:
B3244. Calligraphy by Denise Lach.

Pens: A fine point black permanent pen: Micron 0.3 (M17) and smaller, or any equivalent, white gel pens (M61) and/or white china markers, and any other tools you like to write with.
Ink/Paint: Watercolors (tube) (WNxxx) – warm and cool red, warm and cool yellow and warm and cool blue; white gouache (WNG512) (permanent white); acrylic paint: Azo yellow, Cadmium yellow, Quinacradone red, Cadmium red, Phthalo blue, ultramarine blue and white (I prefer Golden acrylic for quality and inten¬sity of color – tubes, jars or liquid are okay.) Sumi and/or walnut ink (I53).
Paper: 3-4 sheets of Arches Text Wove (PS01) 25" x 40"sheets, torn down to quarter size – people work at dif¬ferent speeds, so this is an estimate. 1 sheet of Arches black (PS90) or white cover paper. 11 x 14 pad of inexpensive paper for practice (P20). I recommend bringing Arches text sheets at 1/4 size for travel, and to have some pre-gessoed, so that you can work both with and without gesso.
Misc: Kneaded eraser (E09), ruler (S270, S271), pencils (S142) 2B, 3B, 4B and 2H, palette (S679, S723) or plate to mix color (or palette paper), water container (S731), pint containers with lids (if you want to mix larger quantities of paint with mediums), a range of sizes of brushes for acrylic paint, brushes for mixing paint, and a small pointed watercolor brush (whatever sizes you have, 0-6), glue stick (S391), bone folder (optional), paper towels or rags.
I will bring: rubber gloves, sandpaper, molding paste, sponges, linen thread (S351, S352, S353), wax finish, methyl cellulose (S343), pastels, materials for portfolio details.
Materials Fee: $10


B2783. Calligraphic Line / Burgert
The Calligraphic Line: Thoughts on the Art of Writing
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. The second section presents Burgert's thoughts on the place of calligraphy in the Western world after the invention of printing from type and its relationship to type. Note that this is a photocopy reproduction. The quality of the illustrations vary, but all are photocopies.



If pg.60 of your copy is blank, see a pdf of the illustrations.

PS90. Arches Cover Paper Black
Arches Cover Black
22"x30". 250gsm. Mouldmade in France. 100% cotton. pH neutral, lightly sized, textured surface. 4 deckles. Black.

Laurie Doctor and others recommend this sheet for book and portfolio covers. It folds without cracking. Judy Melvin likes it for her calligraphic painting - however this is NOT the Arches Black that will bleach correctly. When bleach is applied to this new version the paper turns pink (salmon). Grain direction is parallel to underlined dimension.

This paper ships separately from books/supplies and requires an extra shipping fee which is NOT included in the price of this product. Add item 'PS00' to your cart after adding large sheets of paper. (click to read details)

S351. 12/3 Linen Thread
Unbleached Linen Thread from the UK. 100% Flax / Linen.
50-gram spool. 12/3. Approx. 127 yd.

Because of its strength linen thread is used to sew signatures in book binding. It is often lightly waxed with Beeswax (S289).12/3, 18/3, 35/3. The first number is the thickness of the thread. The higher the number, the thinner the thread. That is 12/3 is thicker than 18/3. The second number is the number of strands that are twisted together to make the thread. 12/3 has three strands. (Flax and linen are two words for the same thing = fabric or thread made from the flax plant.)

All measurements are approximate!
12/3 = 1mm thickness
18/3 = 0.6mm thickness
35/3 = 0.4mm thickness
