The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Degli Arrighi surnamed Vicentino

Arrighi’s Operina was the first writing manual for the chancery hand, and here we have it as a facsimile with an introduction by Stanley Morison and an additional facsimile, Il Modo de Temperare le Penne, all printed on the hand presses of Mardersteig’s Officina Bodoni. Printed for and under the direction of Frederic Warde from his original Arrighi types. A remarkable production by and about important people in our field, calling attention to important works. Important!
