B4295. Unusual Lettering Tools: Scripsit 41.1 / Hasson
B4295. Unusual Lettering Tools, Scripsit 41.1 edited by Randall Hasson. 2019. 36pp. 8.5"x11". Paper

In this issue, you learn of an Italian scribe and the many unique lettering instruments he has created from wood, metal, and plastic. He has used flexible wire, binder clips, and aluminum cans along with sponge material, cardstock strips, shaving razor parts, uncooked pasta, and more to create pens that make vibrant and unique letterforms. Then you delve into another scribe’s more direct use of natural materials, squeeze bottles, cheesecloth in mark making. Then three painters share their artist-made tools that can be adapted for calligraphy. And lastly, Alan Ariail and his metal pen, a new take on the calligraphy pen.

B4302. Written Letters / Svaren
B4302. Written Letters By Jacqueline Svaren. (1986) 2019. Approx. 70pp. 11"x13". Sprial-bound hardcover.

The classic instructional manual Written Letters is in the process of being reprinted. Details are sparse, but it is supposed to happen this year. I’ve been told that it will be a hardcover spiral binding similar to the original printing. And it will be printed in black and red as before.

Written Letters presents over 20 hands with exemplar alphabets, ductus, and extensive notes on the construction of each letter, generally for both minuscules and majuscules. On the opposite page for each hand, a calligraphic composition is presented and Ms Svaren charmingly shares her thoughts on the hand. The entire text is calligraphic, written out by the author in Italic
