A history of the art of calligraphy and a teaching manual. Extensively illustrated. From the Preface: "I wanted a single comprehensive volume, easy to understand, to learn from, and to teach with. I wanted a book containing all the scripts that, to me, represent medieval calligraphy, complete with a history of the evolution of the alphabets, an approach that would enable the student to learn them just as his medieval predecessor did, and one that contained some background on the scribes, their world, and how the style of their writing changed over the course of a thousand years." A near fine, clean copy with the most minor shelfwear and fading to spine pf jacket.
