Type Tuesday: Pelican - A book of Scripts



I found this book in the 2nd hand book shop the other day and it's full of really old, really decorative scripts. It was first published in 1949, but some of the examples date back to 8th century. Like most good books you can still get a 2nd hand copy from Amazon here. xxxx

Lovely. It's fun to find someone as keen on typography as I am.

Thanks for the blog tip. Looks great and I'll explore further. The ViverBEM cover looks like something I've seen before in a US publication. All of the pages are great though, aren't they? Gosh, if only.

What a fantastic find. I am quite jealous. I love numbers, letters and type and I am doing a calligraphy course at the moment too. Lucky you!
