The Art and History of Calligraphy

Patricia Lovett

From the fourth-century Codex Sinaiticus onwards, Patricia Lovett describes and explains the letterforms in some of the most renowned volumes in the history of books. Focusing on the development of calligraphy during the medieval period, through manuscripts, bibles, psalters, and books of hours, the highly illustrated pages also explore the work of later revivalists, such as William Morris, and stylists of recent decades.
