Handwriting of the twentieth century by Rosemary Sassoon( )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,696 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As letter-writing has fallen by the wayside, the art of lavish yet legible handwriting is no longer being taught to schoolchildren or employed in daily life - much to the dismay of those who receive hastily scrawled love notes or try to decipher a doctor's prescription. In an age when script manuals for students are disappearing at a rapid rate and writing samples are ephemeral, Rosemary Sassoon's Handwriting of the Twentieth Century provides the first historical record of teaching the skill of writing in the last 100 years."--book jacket

The designer : half a century of change in image, training, and techniques by Rosemary Sassoon( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Designer is an essential book for anyone interested in, or involved in, design - from those who teach and employ designers to those intending to train in the field. Sassoon surveys fifty years of change in the world of design, covering a wide variety of aspects - from the skills that have been lost and the new techniques that affect our everyday work, to the different methods of training and whether they prepare the student for the work place." "Rosemary Sassoon provides an account of her own career from her beginnings at art school and an apprenticeship, with accounts of long-forgotten techniques of the art. This is an important study of design as an art and a skill - a practical tool with a rich past and relevance for the future."--Jacket
Handwriting : the way to teach it by Rosemary Sassoon( )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 1,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handwriting: The Way to Teach It should be required reading wherever Primary school teachers are trained, then perhaps there would be fewer young people still struggling to communicate in legible writing in Secondary school and later life' - Handwriting Today. Ì found this a fascinating book to read, I could identify with my time at school when I would often write with my paper almost in at right angles to my body because I found this comfortable, and the teacher's insistence that the paper be "straight" in front of me. This then made me twist my body into a ridiculous shape, and

The acquisition of a second writing system by Rosemary Sassoon( Book )

11 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is concerned with writing systems in a multi-cultural context. The field of English as a second language is well researched and documented, but the equally important subject of how to acquire the Latin alphabet as a second writing system, or how to alter from any particular writing system to another, has seldom been considered. An analytical approach to this subject is provided, starting with a system for comparing the rules of writing systems and leading to practical help for teachers and students. Examples of many of the world's writing systems are used to pinpoint areas of possible difficulty, and the subject is expanded to cross-cultural typography and computers." "This is a book for language teachers and students around the world, from the primary school to the university level. Also important to anyone interested in handwriting, or cross-cultural issues in the widest sense."--BOOK JACKET

The power of letterforms : handwritten, printed, cut or carved - how they affect us all by Rosemary Sassoon( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout this book, Sassoon considers the way in which these different letterforms have a profound and persuasive affect on all of us, that we are distinctly unaware of. For example, the ways in which our handwriting is the reflectance of ourselves on paper and the importance of typography and layout for the atmosphere of a design and how that influences the experience of the reader. Letterforms find their way into everyday life, thus this is a fascinating book for all readers. An essential read for those who are in the creative industry, and a useful guide to those with a career involving letterforms. Beautifully illustrated with examples of calligraphy and lettering - from Rosemary and other script artists
