   Description   This learning module is based upon material held at the Crafts Study Centre at The Surrey Institute of Art and Design, Farnham, England. Its aim is to be of use to anyone interested in accessing the Centre´s archive, which is particularly rich in the work of the first two generations of British calligraphers to emerge from the twentieth century revival of calligraphy using the Roman alphabet.
