New video from Barbara Calzolari
A few calligraphy video from typographic conference Serebro Nabora 2012. Evgeny Dobrovinsky about his lecture “Mummy, I Want to Write!”: “We shall describe calligraphy lessons from an aged postal clerk, Sgt. Protsenko, designers Gannushkin and Lazursky, two construction workers, and a sofer. We shall discuss the lettering artist’s lifelong contract, as well as the nonspecific relationship between writing, calligraphy and typography. Brought to you by the man with no handwriting.”
Denis Brown shows samples from his educational calligraphy website calligraphy.tv and educational DVD set. The program offers advanced training along with fundamental knowledge. Primarily for calligraphers of intermediate and advanced level, those with less experience may yet find it inspiring as long as they realize some content will beyond their level for now.
The Speedball Textbook is the most popular and widely available book on lettering ever published! The original first edition was published in 1915, so this publication has a long and rich tradition. 17th Edition of this book was found on Flickr. And a top of that look at Calligraphy Lettering Chart from Speedball website.
