Synopsis: New Yorkers who walked along Madison Avenue in the '60s, '70s, and '80s would recognize her masterful posters for the Morgan Library. Scribes in the U.S. and abroad know her through her celebrated workshops. She is Alice Koeth, known professionally simply as Alice, and although she is one of the most respected contemporary calligraphers, relatively few examples of her works have been published in book form, a vast majority remaining unseen and unknown. Over a career spanning more than sixty years, Alice's artistry exemplifies taste, technique, wit, and her own unique graphic style. A keen understanding of craft, respect for tools, and interest in historical forms have contributed to her command of calligraphy. Whether using Coit and Automatic pens or the smallest of Speedball nibs, this versatility has enabled her to tackle all manner of calligraphic design problems. From Alice's own personal archives, this book contains not only her mature work, but also charming early works from the 1950s, as well as sketches and preliminary layouts, which offer a rare glimpse into her working process. The Morgan Library has graciously photographed a dozen of her most special posters, which have not been seen for decades, especially for this publication. With exclusive and professionally photographed pieces throughout, and printed by quality offset lithography using fine line screens on archival uncoated paper, this book is being produced to the highest standards.

About the Author: Jerry Kelly is an award-winning book designer, calligrapher, and typographer. A former student of Herman Zapf, one of the digital age s most influential typographers, Kelly was the 2015 recipient of the Frederic W. Goudy Award for an outstanding practitioner of type design. He is the founder of Jerry Kelly LLC and since 1978 has been a partner at the Kelly-Winterton Press, a small shop printing fine letterpress editions.
Alice Koeth was born in New York City and studied calligraphy at the Brooklyn Museum Art School with the renowned Arnold Bank. She began free-lancing in 1953 and teaching in 1970. Her work has been included in many calligraphy publications, including Calligraphers Engagement Calendars, Modern Scribes and Lettering Arts, International Calligraphy Today, and Lettering Arts. New Yorkers know her for her masterful posters for the Morgan Library, which she designed from the 1960s through the 80s. She is on the faculty of twelve international calligraphy conferences and is a founding member of the Society of Scribes.
Donald Jackson is the official scribe and calligrapher to the Crown Office of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. He is also artistic director of The Saint John s Bible, a hand-written and illuminated Bible commissioned by the Benedictine monastery of Saint John s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.
