Decoration & Its Uses
Edward Johnston (a.); John C. Tarr (illus. & intro.). Johnston traces the development of letterforms & type, & the use & application of formal writing. Among the topics of importance to calligraphers & designers are the value of decoration, its proper application, & its practice & usage. Includes diagrams of page layouts illustrating how calligraphy is applied to book work. The essay was handlettered in 1930 by John C. Tarr, a former student of Johnstonís, to illustrate the teachings of his past master. The pages were sewn into a simple paper over boards binding with a cloth spine. It was originally published in book form in 1971. This new edition re-introduces the book to a new audience.
