A Dover re-publication of a 1930 volume on calligraphy lettering that distills an enormous amount of knowledge into a readable and illustrated form. The author, a renowned calligrapher with over 30 years of experience, held the respect of many in his day, as noted by his numerous commissions from the British government. AUTHOR: Graily Hewitt (1864 1952) attended Trinity College, Cambridge, and trained as a lawyer. Classes at London's Central School of Arts and Crafts led to Hewitt's taking on a teaching position there and at the Camberwell School of Art. Hewitt was instrumental in the revival of gilding in calligraphy, and his work is kept in the Victoria and Albert Museum's collections.
