“The Calligraphy of Alice”
Kickstarter campaign: June 24 – July 30, 2016
While Alice’s work is known to scribes all over, the vast body of her graphic output remains unseen and uncollected. With your help, this first-ever compilation of Alice’s art will change that. Jerry Kelly has written an introduction and selected, with Alice’s active participation, over 150 illustrations, showing the breadth of her artistry. Donald Jackson has contributed an eloquent appreciation of his friend and colleague. And, to the delight of calligraphers, sketches and preliminary layouts will offer a rare glimpse into her working process. The book will run to over 140 pages in large format, with many color illustrations. It will be printed on archival paper, hardcover, with a sewn binding using imported cloth.
Download a pdf prospectus for the book, with more information and sample pages, here.
The Kickstarter page is live until July 30th; you can see it here.
There will be early subscriber discounts, and various premiums will be available, including original calligraphic samples by Alice, as well as deluxe limited editions with special additional material.
