B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word B2982. John Stevens SCRIBE: Artist of the Written Word. 264pp. 8.75"x11.25". Hardcover
A profusely illustrated, full-color retrospective of John Stevens' work with letterforms. Includes calligraphy and lettering -- artworks, personal work, experimental work, commissioned work -- as well as graphic work and type design. His body of work spans paper to stone, books to walls, hand-lettering to type and the digital realm.
In the text, John presents his approach to a design or work and his thoughts on letterforms, and continues with a discussion on tools, teaching, design and writing in general. Using his body of work as example, he makes the case that divisions between fine arts and graphic arts are mostly irrelevant.
