B2614. Codici 1/Ingmire
Codici 1.
Edited by Thomas Ingmire. 2003. 64pp. 8.5"x11". Paper.

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 the students, as well as images and brief discussions 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 Burgert: the calligraphic line, the space of
writing: the ditchling project. The emphasis is on a visual rather than a verbal message.

BR28. W&N Series #7 Watercolor Brush
Series 7 fulfills the essential qualities that define the finest watercolor brush for artists: Point: The brush comes to a crisp point which is maintained during use. Snap & Spring: The brush snaps crisply back into shape with the right degree of spring to allow the artist superior control between the brush and painting surface. Flow Control: The color flows evenly and consistently from the point, with enough color carrying capacity in the belly of the brush to allow flowing gestural strokes. For artists who appreciate exquisite quality and longevity, there is no other brush than the Series 7. Today, just as in 1866, the Series 7 is made for those who understand that the quality of the brush will be reflected in the quality of their work.
