B4311. Leave Your Mark: The Pleasure of Writing by Hand by Monica Dengo. 2019. 128pp. 8.25"x9.75". Hardcover

Through an Italic-based handwriting style, this book opens up the creative potential of handwriting. Warm-up exercises flow into strokes, forms, and joins. Rhythm variations are explored, as are capital forms. The next section moves into the creative potential of handwriting: the weave of the text, the expressivity of marks, abstract writing, and the writing of other cultures. It's colorful, inspiring, and yet structured, and there is the joy of expressing oneself by means of a personal mark and the understanding that handwriting is much more than just the graphic transcription of language, going to the origin of the need for expression.
