B4249. Folded Pen Adventures / DuBosch B4249. Folded Pen Adventures by Carol DuBosch. 2018. 32pp. 8"x8". Paper
This instruction book teaches how to use the folded pen to write an Italic-based alphabet. You learn how the folded pen works, starting with basic strokes. Follow the model alphabets that give stroke direction and sequence, and then add flourishes to the letters. Next, more vertical and more cursive variations of the basic alphabet are shown, and two new alphabets are introduced: Neuland and Bensgothic (based on Ben Shahn letters). Bleach techniques, color blending, folded-pen making, and various forms of the folded pen are presented. Includes many examples of Carol’s delightful calligraphy.
