Lettering : Art & Illusion

Lettering : Art & Illusion


Lettering : Art & Illusion depicts lettering that is created by hand through calligraphy, letter cutting, painting and engraving. Writing is a most ancient art form and for millennia the art of the scribe was held in great esteem. The professional scribe in Arabic, Japanese, Indian and Egyptian scripts, as well as what we would now consider a western hand, proffered the foundations of formal languages as we know them today; from pictograms and hieroglyphics to italic and copperplate scripts, realised in stone, glass and metal and on parchment, vellum and paper. Through the work of the selected artists and makers, we can study the techniques, ancient in their origins, yet timelessly original in their expression, created with contemporary style and sensitivity.
