ART & LETTERING

Our Calligraphic Heritage by Ismar David. This beautifully-designed instructional book comes in a buckram-bound box which forms a stand on which to place the exemplars of lettering styles for lettering practice. David was one of the outstanding calligraphers of the 20th century and an exacting teacher. Each alphabet style is represented by a folder with instructional text and letters in that style and by a reproduction of a calligraphic piece of art in that style. There is also a paperbound book as part of the set which gives a historical overview of the Latin alphabet, based on the styles in the folders. All acid-free. Limited edition, signed and numbered by author/artist.
