9780500515044: Calligraphy: A Book of Contemporary Inspiration

Calligraphy can be a very personal pathway to explore a multiplicity of design concepts. In this striking and original book, images of the natural world are turned into a rich source of inspiration for a variety of calligraphy projects. Renowned calligrapher Denise Lach invites us to look closely at details and textures, expanding our powers of observation and finding creative ideas in the world around us. Using a range of writing tools and techniques, she takes a playful approach to written script, encouraging readers to look beyond legibility and use letterforms as building blocks, freely interpreting natural motifs to create beautiful calligraphic images. This is an invaluable sourcebook for both enthusiastic beginners and experienced calligraphers who wish to let their imaginations run free.

About the Author:

Denise Lach has been involved with calligraphy and conceptual writing since early 1985. She teaches lettering design and screenprinting at the Basel School of Design, and leads calligraphy courses and workshops in Switzerland and abroad. She contributed to André Gürtler's book Experiments with Letterform and Calligraphy (1997), and has produced two books of her own, Libres & égaux (2001) and Préfaces & préambules (2006).

Review:

“Calligraphy isn’t your standard pretty-lettering primer, but rather an edgy, inspirational guide for both beginning and experienced calligraphers. . . . Transforms images from nature into a rich bounty of inspiration.”
- HOW Magazine

“The examples featured are highly original...derived from nature, and [are] subtle, rich and tactile.”
- Better Interiors
