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. It is a painterly presentation printed on an off-white sheet, which gives the color reproduction a subtle warmth. Contributors include Denis Brown, Jane Dill, Ward Dunham & Linnea Lundquist, Olive Bull, Glen Epstein, Rose Folsom, Georgianna Greenwood, Thomas Ingmire, Cheryl Jacobsen, Hermann Kilian, Werner Schneider,Brody Neuenschwander, Jan Owen, Paul Shaw, Susan Skarsgard. There are also many Europeans who are little known to American calligraphers. Introductory essays are by Carlo Buffa "So Far, So Close"; Thomas Ingmire "Calligraphy in the 20th Century"; Tiziano Santi "Between Word and Image"; and Manfredo Massironi "The Pleasure of Showing & Looking at Words." A final essay by Monica
Dengo is on "The Work of Thomas Ingmire." Each essay is in English and Italian.
Please be warned. The f-word appears on pages 10-11. If the word gives you offense, don't purchase this book.
