The art of Alice Koeth, known professionally as Alice, one of the world's most respected calligraphers.

In a career spanning more than sixty years, Alice's artistry exemplifies taste, technique, wit, and her own unique graphic style. A keen understanding of craft, respect for tools, and interest in historical forms have contributed to her command of calligraphy.

Whether using Coit and Automatic pens or the smallest of Speedball nibs, this versatility has enabled her to tackle all manner of calligraphic design problems. From Alice's own personal archives, this book contains not only her mature work, but also early works from the 1950's, as well as sketches and preliminary layouts, which offer a rare glimpse into her working process.
