Images for use in transfers: In your final com¬position we will be combining text and image, therefore when selecting images to bring please consider the following: images may include line drawings, collage, photos both black and white and/or color with interesting contrast but not too dark. These images will be copied and transferred so the original will not be harmed. It's probably best not to think too hard about all this, grab what you love, the rest will follow. It's often the serendipitous surprises that are the most fun.
Text: For the text consider the follow¬ing: a handwritten letter, notes from a journal, a poem or quote printed in various fonts and sizes, or perhaps pages from an old or new book, maps and other ephemera, again to be copied and transferred. Also look for text that could be considered texture.
Homework: Think of and write down a word that has some sig¬nificance to you. One word – write it down and bring it. Also bring at least three images that "speak to" the idea of rhythm or negative space – that you love – photos, Xeroxes, or simply something from a magazine or newspaper. We won't be writing on them or destroying them (unless you feel so inclined.)
Supplies: Sumi ink (I70); X-acto knife (S621, S662); bone folder (S279, S308) – if you have one already, otherwise a burnisher (S701) or spoon (S661); PVA (S340) or glue stick (S391); favorite and funky writing tools; pads of layout paper 14x17 or 19x24, your preference.
Optional: Your usual workshop stuff – (optional) pencils, watercolors, colored inks, pens, ink, tape, ruler, kitchen sink! Black roller ball pen that you like to write with and paper or book for journaling. Ream of multi-use paper, you know, computer paper. (If you're traveling by air, Odyssey will have some for purchase.)
Materials fee: $25


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.

I70. Moon Palace Sumi Ink
Moon Palace Sumi
The Ink is now in a bottle with a Gold Label

While the packaging is a bit different, this is the highly sought after and highly recommended Japanese Sumi Ink. For both broad edge and pointed pen work. Dries waterproof. A great calligraphy ink.

"I like Moon Palace better, but both Moon Palace and Best Bottle are beautiful inks. The Moon Palace has a slight sheen to it, which I like. Michael suggested this ink to me so please tell him I said, "thank you". I just finished a job of 200 invitations with Moon Palace and the ink is beautiful. I did not dilute the ink.
A client just brought me invitations (slick paper) to address. This bride knew going into this that I probably couldn't do pointed pen. However, for fun, I tried the Sumi inks and to my surprise they worked pretty darn good. I usually have to use a sharpie on slick envelopes, yikes!!!"

--Clair F., Jan 2011.

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
