Artist & alphabet : twentieth century calligraphy and letter art in America by Jerry Kelly( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past quarter century, calligraphy and the lettering arts have enjoyed a renaissance all across America. As the century closes, it seems both appropriate and timely for Godine to join forces with the Society of Scribes (who will be marking their twenty-fifth anniversary) and the AIGA to assemble, exhibit, and illustrate the work of the calligraphers who have made major contributions to the field and whose work, in the opinion of their peers, is consistently outstanding. Here, then, is a book presenting a century of scribes, representing 140 examples of their best work, and displaying the taste, variety and vitality of the lettering arts in this country over the past century. The greats are all here, from Arnold Bank, John Howard Benson, and W.A. Dwiggins to Alexander Zanetti and Hermann Zapt (whose influence is so pervasive and whose American contacts so legion that it would have been criminal to omit him). Between are examples with 96 specimens illustrated in full color and 47 in black and white, of the very best this country has produced."--Jacket

The art of the book in the twentieth century : a study of eleven influential book designers from 1900 to 2000 by Jerry Kelly( Book )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the twentieth century, modern design theories in combination with newer printing technologies offered book designers far more options than were previously available to them. Utilizing these resources, some skillful artisans produced stunning designs in period style, arranging modern re-cuttings of early type designs with historical decoration that resulted in the creation of truly beautiful books; while others preferred a more contemporary aesthetic, building upon earlier principles in a fresh, novel manner. Through the selection of eleven master designers, Jerry Kelly illustrates a wide range of styles: from classically inspired design and historical revival, to novel and modern layouts. He describes the care with which each designer combined typographic elements in their own unique way. The selection of these designers, ranging from Updike to Zapf, is only a small sampling of the practitioners that the twentieth century produced, but they are indicative of the wide range of book design styles achieved during this exceptionally dynamic century. With insightful commentary and carefully selected illustrations, Kelly highlights these important practitioners of the craft of book design, which while by no means is totally inclusive, introduce the reader to exquisite examples of quality book design of the twentieth century and the principles behind them

Rooms of wonder : from Wunderkammer to museum, 1599-1899 : an exhibition at the Grolier Club, 5 December 2012-2 February 2013 by Florence Fearrington( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First edition, second printing with some corrections. The German term "Wunderkammer" refers to a room full of wondrous things, objects noteworthy for their beauty, or their rarity, or their curious nature, or their artistic, scholarly, or monetary value. Wunderkammers originated as private collections in the 16th century, and proliferated throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, but began to decline when a more systematic approach to the accumulation of natural and man-made objects gave rise to our modern museums of art, culture, and natural history. Published to accompany the exhibition "Rooms of Wonder: from Wunderkammer to Museum, 1599-1899," the book focuses on the beautiful and elaborately illustrated catalogues produced by collectors over three hundred years to celebrate their "cabinets of curiosities." 0Exhibition: Grolier Club, New York, USA (5.12.2012-2.2.2013)
