Calligraphity’s Review
Following on from its successful predecessor, Uncommon Numbers, the articles covered in The Uncommon Numbers Manual takes the readers understanding of how numerals need to relate their alphabetic counterparts.
After an inspiring opening chapter by Brenda Casey Zoby that reminds of what we learnt in Uncommon Numbers, we are treated to 8 master classes from eminent calligraphers that show us how we should approach and create our numerals for the following different hands:
 Uncial with Sheila Waters
 Blackletter with Ward Dunbar
 Italics with Alice Koeth
 Copperplate with Georgina Artigas
 Foundational Variation with Cheryl Adams
 Neuland with Carl Rohrs
 Pointed Pen with Michael Kecseg – and finally,
 Design with Italic Letters and Numbers with Julian Waters
A must for every Calligrapher’s book shelf!!.
