Written Letters presents over 20 hands with exemplar alphabets, ductus, and extensive notes on the construction of each letter, generally for both minuscules and majuscules. On the opposite page for each hand, a calligraphic composition is presented and Ms. Svaren charmingly shares her thoughts on the hand. The entire text is calligraphic, written out by the author in Italic. This new printing pulls the best from all the earlier editions.
The first lettering Bible I ever had, and I still cherish it.
A must-have for letter lovers
An important book to my early understanding of calligraphy in the 1980s.
I love this book for the handwritten instructions and details on all the letters of many, many broad-edge styles. It's one of the books I most frequently pull off the shelf.
I love the addition of spiral binding. So much easier to handle compared to older versions, especially for high quality photocopies for use where having the book isn't practical.
I love this book! It's great when you want to tweak a letter or look at a whole new script.
One of the first books I purchased at the beginning of my lettering journey more than thirty years ago.
This book is excellent.
A wonderful book. I have used it in the classroom for years.
This is the best book for calligraphy.
