British scholar and teacher Edward Johnston regarded lettering, writing, and illuminating as not only desirable ends in themselves but also as practical avenues to mastery of typography, decoration, and design. In this classic, profusely illustrated guide, he distilled his expertise into a series of easy-to-follow lessons that will benefit any student of calligraphy, book design, or art. Part I is devoted to writing and illuminating. Early chapters cover the fundamentals of acquiring a formal hand: choosing paper, ink, and quills; holding the pen; spacing and planning a manuscript; and more. The author then turns to the techniques of producing a manuscript book: tools and materials, methods and proportions, margins, and other methods. Part II offers a detailed discussion of lettering: the qualities of good lettering, methods of construction and arrangement, spacing, proportion, and other matters. Two appendixes cover the uses of lettering in book bindings, wall inscriptions, monograms, and title pages as well as the techniques involved in lettering on metal, wood, and stone. AUTHOR: Edward Johnston (1872-1944) is regarded as one of the fathers of calligraphy and his books and teachings are credited with reviving the art of modern penmanship and lettering. The sans-serif Johnston typeface that appeared throughout the London Underground prior to the 1980s was his most prominent design. Johnston influenced a generation of British calligraphers and typographers, notably Eric Gill, and his students founded the Society of Scribes and Illuminators.… (mais)

No glossy pages, no eye popping illustrations…While there are many calligraphy books available today that are more appealing to the eye, few are so historically important and rich in information than Writing & Illuminating & Lettering. The author, Edward Johnston, is known as the “father of modern calligraphy” and is responsible for it’s renaissance in the 20th century. He was involved in the Arts and Crafts movement and published this book in 1906.

Without any available resources in a world where pointed pen prevailed, he took it upon himself to rediscover the lost methods of broad edged pens for lettering. But it is not only broad edged pens that he covers, but so many aspect of calligraphy…it’s history and evolution, plus extensive instruction on tools, design, illumination, guilding , versals, stone inscription and so much more.

This unassuming book is a veritable wealth of information and a “bible” for calligraphic arts. I highly recommend this book to anyone seriously interested in calligraphy and it’s modern evolution. ( )

This was the book that revived Calligraphy. Johnston was the father of modern Calligraphy, and it is from him that today's interest in the subject derives. The book is written in the typical Johnston style, and being originally written in 1906 needs just a little translation, and some tempering with modern techniques. Nevertheless, the book is certainly complete in every detail of all aspects of Calligraphy, and is a book that all Calligraphers should have in their libraries, having first read it, as a piece of history and basic calligraphy knowledge - not just 'dipped' into it.

The book that helped in the revival of interest in lettering in Britain

An older book, but the best one I have ever found on illuminating and calligraphy. First took it out of a public library in Hamilton (ON, Canada) 30 years ago - found it in a used bookstore in Washington state last year (2005) ( )
