B4248. Brown Calligraphy / Denis Brown
B4248. Brown Calligraphy: Denis Brown Discusses His Art by Denis Brown. 2018. 264pp. 8.5"x12". Hardcover.

In this book, renowned calligrapher Denis Brown reveals the journey of his work, from schoolboy accomplishments through rebellious outbreaks to artistic masterpieces. Brown's calligraphy transcends the worlds of lettering and design to incorporate broader realms of expression and artistic communication. He discusses in detail the values of his craft: letterform and composition, structure and fluency, and discipline and freedom. He also candidly examines creativity with content and conceptual approaches in responding to texts. The artist presents and discusses a broad range of his calligraphy, from formal and traditional pieces to expressive, conceptual, and even transcendent works of art. This book has been designed by its author, a leader in the international field of Western calligraphy, to be one of his works in its own right.

N213. Pointed Quills (pack of 5)
N213. Pointed Quills (variety 5 pack).

These quill pens have been cured and cut for regular handwriting and are great for school classroom study, historical reenactment, and those wanting to write or draw with a quill. The staff and barbs have been trimmed, as was standard practice when quills were widely used. This makes for a functional writing tool (but is less showy than the full-feather quill pen props that appear in movies.)

For period appropiate gall ink, try McCaffery's Black or Old World.

Uncut quills and quills cut for broad-edge calligraphy (Italic, Uncial, Blackletter, etc.) are also available.

B4305. Happy Hand Lettering /Taylor
B4305. Happy Hand Lettering: An Inspirational Guide for Creating Beautiful Words of Life by Maghon Taylor. 2019. 144pp. 9"x10.25". Spiralbound.

Happy Hand Lettering is a colorful and fun guide to learning hand lettering, step by step, drawing inspiration from the Bible throughout. This book is packed full of traceable creative alphabets, and practice pages. It contains many practical ideas for creating handmade gifts such as ornaments, gift tags, and envelopes.

"Maghon's book is about making large letters by hand, joyfully, with a pointed marker, such as a Sharpie. She breaks it down for you and keeps it simple. The instruction moves at very manageable pace. It is like she is there talking to you, showing you, and giving you, each time, only what you need to know for the lesson, including some trace and copy exercise pages for each of the three alphabets you learn. The alphabet styles are common in more contemporary hand lettering; she calls them , my favorite, signature swirl, and print. The second half of the book is a collection of projects to use (and practice) the letters you learn. Each project is also a positive life lesson with inspiration from a passage from the Bible. For example, the "You are strong, bold, beautiful, and brave" project draws inspiration from 1 Thessalonians 5:11: Therefore encourage one another and build one another up."
