Buchbeschreibung Cardozo Kindersley Editions & uitgeverij de Buitenkant, Cambridge, first edition, 1989, 1989. Laminated illustrated wrappers, 4to, 26 cm. 96 pp, ills. From the blurb: "David Kindersley stands recognised as one of the world's greatest designer-makers of letters. In this book Montague Shaw starts with a biographical introduction and follows it by describing many of D.K.'s commissions from the client's first approach to the finished article. The book moves from an inscription cut in the bomb damaged walls of the V & A Museum to the calligraphy in the Ruskin Gallery, glass engraving, brick carving and free work. All the stories are extensively illustrated with materials from the Workshop files." Very Good. Artikel-Nr. ABE-40490
