For five years calligrapher Thomas Ingmire has provided text and heads for sixteen one-of-a-kind books of poetry by Pablo Neruda and Federico García Lorca. This collaborative effort included poet and model Mary Julia Klimenko, artist Manuel Neri, and design binders Daniel E. Kelm, Kylin Lee, and others at the Wide Awake Garage bindry. This catalog is generously illustrated in full color with large-format double-page images from the books. The text is in English and Spanish and by Bruce Nixon with additional contributions by Mark Dimunation, Joseph Goldyne; Michael Keller, Roberto Trujillo; and Steve Woodall. Spanish title: Cosas que sueñan: Libros de artistas caligráficos contemporaneous. Available June 2012.

These are books that Thomas will reference in his class. *Highly recommended

Thomas provides the text and heads. Neri the art.
B3187. Manuel Neri: Artists' Books / The Collaborative Process by Bruce Nixon, Robert Flynn Johnson. 194pp. 10"x12". Hardcover $60.00
This catalog presents seven artists books. The first four are collaborations: artist, printer, photographer, & binder, and are produced in limited editions. Of most interest to calligraphers are the last three books -- each a single copy original. These books present poems by Pablo Neruda (Ode to A Beautiful Nude, Morning, Afternoon & Tonight, and Truth and Poetry). Thomas Ingmire has written out each poem in italic -- both in English and in Spanish. It's a beautiful volume.

LR26-1. Letter Arts Review 26-1 has a 16-page, profusely illustrated article on the Thomas Ingmire / Manuel Neri collaboration. $14.50

B900. Words of Risk: The Art of Thomas Ingmire by Michael Gullick. 1989. 90pp. 65 illus., many in full color. 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 multi-layered visual statements. His juxtaposition of and interplay between words & images challenges the traditional role of calligraphy as "decorated writing." The book describes the work and working process of Ingmire & reproduces virtually all of his major pieces, many in full color.

B2614. Codici 1 edited by Thomas Ingmire. 2003. 64pp. 8.5"x11". 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 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.

B2244. Belle Lettere. 1997. 168pp. 9.5" x 12". 200 illustrations, almost all in full color.
Hardcover $99.00
This full-color book presents the best works from the entries for the Belle Lettere Prize. It is a glorious volume filled with full-page and detail color shots of the expressive calligraphic pieces. All are in full color. Note: The copies available at this time no longer have a slipcase as did the earliest copies. We do not have access to more slipcases.

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.

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.

Four sizes available:

2.0 oz (widemouthed jar)
6.0 oz (180ml)

15 & 60 oz are temporarily unavailable: arriving Dec 2019
