More Than Fine Writing is one of the most important books on calligraphy to be published in recent times. Focusing on the life and art of Irene Wellington -- considered one of the truly original figures in the development of calligraphy in our century -- it also provides a history of calligraphy's development into the vibrant and dynamic art form it is today. The four contributors to this volume, themselves noted calligraphers, help to tell the story of Wellington's life and work, illustrate her methods and techniques, assess her legacy and place it in the context of twentieth century calligraphy. Their work makes this an essential resource for any present or future calligraphers.

From Publishers Weekly:

Wellington's calligraphy has been praised for its absolute rightness of design, its liveliness and grace, its easy fusion of writing and decoration. This pioneer of the British arts-and-crafts movement could turn a listing of 400 bailiffs into an elegant piece of abstract design. A Christmas carol penned on parchment sings with understated dignity, while a calligraphic collage of animals and alphabet fragments astonishes with its freewheeling spontaneity. Wellington, who died in 1984, did commissioned pieces for the British royal family. Her copybooks, penned quotations and book illustrations reveal her sureness of touch. The most personal pieces are whimsical cards made for friends, full of witty decorations. This album includes 125 color reproductions of her writings and illuminations.
