B4266. Calligraphy as Art and Meditation / Jonas
B4266. Calligraphy as Art and Meditation: A New Approach by Gina Jonas. 2018. 272 pp. 8.75"x11.5". Hardcover, concealed spiral binding.

In her highly innovative, holistic approach, Jonas invites you to integrate mind, body, and feeling as the foundation for calligraphic art. As meditation, you cultivate a relaxed, alert state of mind -- coordinating the breath with stroke and letter making. In this tool-centered approach, you explore such calligraphic essentials as movement and contact through training alphabets that include Playball and Proteus. The book’s exercises build skill and confidence developmentally. They focus on design (letter, text, alphabet), ductus (“target practice”), dynamics (stroke technique, rhythm), spacing, creativity, and play. By always beginning with warm-ups, you are prepared to merge flow with form to create living letterforms. Full of color illustrations and diagrams.

Gina Jonas is author of the JNB bestseller Finding the Flow (B2830). That book explores the energy, touch, and rhythmical movement essential to the living letterform: its flow. Calligraphy as Art and Meditation incorporates that exploration of flow as it delves deeply into the structural and design fundamentals of calligraphic writing: its form. And through the marriage of flow and form you learn to create vital letterforms, alphabets, and word and text images.

Gina Jonas is also the author of Hebrew Calligraphy Styles. (B1619).

B4270. Old Fashioned Floral Illustrations / Grafton
B4270. Old Fashioned Floral Illustrations by Carol Grafton. 1990. 64pp.8.5"x11". Paper.

Recommended by Heather Held

For this exceptionally comprehensive and useful collection, the author has selected over 700 royalty-free floral illustrations from a variety of rare 19th-century publications. Carefully chosen for attractiveness and appeal are bouquets of mixed florals; single blossoms of exquisite roses, calla lilies, and tulips; delicate sprays of daisies and apple blossoms; wreaths woven of wildflowers; nasturtium borders; and much more. Delightful vignettes of a child tending her garden, a young couple sharing thoughts in a turn-of-a-century greenhouse, and dozens of other appealing scenes round out this charming sourcebook of immediately usable floral motifs. Their crisp detail, reproducibility, and charming old-time flavor make them ideal for a myriad of graphic projects.
