More Than Fine Writing is one of the most important books on calligraphy to be published in recent times. Focusing on the life and art of Irene Wellington -- considered one of the truly original figures in the development of calligraphy in our century -- it also provides a history of calligraphy's development into the vibrant and dynamic art form it is today. The four contributors to this volume, themselves noted calligraphers, help to tell the story of Wellington's life and work, illustrate her methods and techniques, assess her legacy and place it in the context of twentieth century calligraphy. Their work makes this an essential resource for any present or future calligraphers.

Personal details of Irene Wellinton's life and extensive examples of her calligraphic work both commissioned and personal as gifts to dear friends are included in this book. I found her history inspiring and could relate very well to how writing helps me connect my thoughts.
