New Yorkers of the '60s, '70s, and '80s would recognize her masterful posters for the Morgan Library.
Scribes all over the globe know her through her celebrated workshops.
She is Alice Koeth, known professionally as Alice, and although she is one of the most respected contemporary calligraphers, relatively few examples of her works have been published in book form, a vast majority remaining unseen and unknown.
Over 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.
From Alice's own personal archives, this book contains not only her mature work, but also charming early works from the 1950s, as well as sketches and preliminary layouts, which offer a rare glimpse into her working process.
