About this title


This is the first modern manual devoted exclusively to the Black Letter or Gothic family of alphabets, the most graphically powerful yet least understood of all the alphabet groups. Using this book with its careful directions, its background notes, and its many illustrative examples drawn both from medieval and modern periods, will equip the calligrapher to approach the writing of these hands with a knowledge of their uses as well as the techniques on which they depend.
