The Art and History of Calligraphy

The British Library
With exquisite illustrations, an exploration of 77 intricate, expressive and individual examples of calligraphy from European manuscripts in the Library’s collection: including the Lindisfarne Gospels c.720, the Domesday Book of 1086, the Sforza Hours, 1517-20, William Morris’s ‘Icelandic Sagas’, 1873-4, and the RAF ‘Book of Remembrance’, 1959-65. With expert commentary, the works range from the Middle Ages, when beautiful calligraphy was a way of celebrating the divine, to the renaissance of the art form by William Morris, and the modern school of calligraphers following in the wake of master typographer Edward Johnston. Includes large-scale full-colour reproductions showcasing the fine detail, painstaking craft and great artistic skill necessary to create these strikingly beautiful pieces of writing.

Hardback, 224 pages, 100 colour illustrations.
