A third edition of Jaqi Svaren's classic book of calligraphic hands with historical, technical and philosophical annotations is about to be released. "Written Letters" originally had instructions for 22 historical and modern calligraphic scripts. The second edition had 33 scripts. The third edition has a new introduction and other new content, but I do not have details on what has been added. 

 

Jaqueline Svaren was a student of Lloyd Reynolds in the 1950's. She has worked as a professional calligrapher and teacher of calligraphy. In my opinion, her book is a treasure.

 

The third edition of "Written Letters" is now available for pre-order through John Neal Booksellers.

 

Disclosure: The editor and designer of this book is my Daughter-in-Law, Stephanie Snyder. She is Director and Curator of the Cooley Art Gallery on the Reed College campus in Portland, Oregon. She nor I have any financial interest in this publication.

 

David.

Thanks so much for posting this, David. I had not heard about this excellent book or Jacqueline Svaren’s calligraphy work before.

I think I might still have my copy of that (or at least some calligraphy book by her) somewhere in my house, from back when I took a calligraphy class in college.
