Book summary

This reference work was originally published in 1906 and is aimed at the serious calligrapher. The three skills identified in the title are explained with the help of illustrations. The plates have been re-originated. Johnson carried out research into the development of writing and the use of the broad pen by the medieval scribe, the theory and development of manuscript illustration, and the practical importance of lettering. The book contains models and advice for modern applications. [via]
