B042. Writing & Illuminating & Lettering (Reprint) / Johnston
B042. Writing & Illuminating & Lettering by Edward Johnston. 1906; 2017 reprint. 434pp. 4.75"x7.25 ". Paper

An encyclopedic treatment by the man who revived calligraphy in the 20th century. Much in more recent books is derived from this one. Johnston covers both lettering and illumination, first presenting the tools, methods, models, and practice methods for acquiring a formal hand, and how to use it in creating a manuscript book. The design and use of Versals and color follow, then gilding and illumination. Next are qualities of good lettering and other hands, including Uncials and Italic. The chapter on inscriptions in stone is by Eric Gill.

Originally published in 1906, this is an unabridged republication of the 1946 printing of the 1939 revision.
