Yves Leterme


Odyssey Conference Class Listing

A12: GESTURAL WRITING CLASS


B2830. Finding the Flow by Gina Jonas.

"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 of Letter Arts Review (LR19-2) from a couple of years ago."

The Scripsit 26.1 is sold out, but Scripsit 21.2 (B2881) is still available with lettering by Julian, John Stevens, Ward Dunham and Michael Clark. Pens & Protocol (B3016) has a section of Julian Waters' calligraphy.
The Character. John Steven is no longer available. John Steven's forthcoming book (B2982) can be reserved.
Jezuswoorden is not presently available in North America, but a book on the full range of Brody's work, Textasy (B2917) was recently published and limited number of copies will be available at Odyssey. You may pre-order a copy.

When Yves was at Cheerio, he mentioned the work of Elmo van Singerland, a Dutch lettering artist. Scripsit 19.2 (B2878) has four pages of his work, along with that of Hermann Kilian, Sherry Bringham, Jose Mendoza Y Almeida & Tony Forster. Scripsit 20.3 (B2880) is similar.

Pens/Pencils: Speedball nibs (N09) C5, C4 and C3; a mechanical pencil (S681) with refills HB 0.5 mm.
Ink: Black non-waterproof ink, Pelican (I04) is a good choice; some aquarelle and gouache (optional).
Paper: a lot (about 50 sheets) of cheap, smooth exercise paper (P20) I usually work on photocopier paper, A3 format or 11"x 17" that allows production of sharp lines without the ink flowing out; a few sheets of quality paper e.g. Rives BFK (PS91), not too big.
Misc: a ruler (S270, S271), pointed brush (optional), Pentel pointed brush (FP57) (optional), ruling pen (N22) or "cola" pen (optional).
Materials Fee: $15


B2830. Finding the Flow/Jonas
Finding the Flow: A Calligraphic Journey by Gina Jonas. 2006. 85pp. 8.5" x 11". Spiral bound. Paper

A new approach to calligraphy for all levels, which acquaints the scribe with the essential but largely unexplored dynamics of stroke technique. Through stroke exercises with pencil and edged pen you explore vital movement and sensitive touch. You discover how shoulder, arm, fingers, and pen combine with alternating of pressure. The exercises lead to an intimate understanding of the edged pen: a foundation for formal alphabet study, creative alphabet design, and artistic self-expression! Begin
your calligraphy practice before starting formal alphabet study by warming up, sensitizing, and integrating mind and body. Full of illustrations and diagrams.
