Pick Up Your PenSpring 2012 Doing & Learning
This is not your ordinary workbook. For those who have all but abandoned the pen for the keystroke, artist Monica Dengo reawakens the fun and pleasure of handwriting. Each letter of the alphabet is treated as a work of art in waiting. The pages devoted to practice emerge as music staff paper on which the examples of type serve as notes alive with creative promise.
Dengo presents handwriting as an art form, demonstrating not only how different the same letter can look, but also the potential for changing how each letter is perceived. Loud, soft, playful, easy, liquid, bold.
Pick Up Your Pen gives children of all ages the opportunity to choreograph the alphabet. And that is a gift worth giving.
