Instructions for the double-faced weave, and graphs for letters based on six Roman alphabets: Uncial, the early Christian alphabet; Textura Quadrata, a 14th century Gothic hand; 15th century Humanist Bookhand; Italic, the fine Italian hand; Legend, a typeface with an Arabic feeling designed by Ernst Schneidler; and Gill Sans, a modern sans-serif typeface designed by Eric Gill. For each alphabet, several words are graphed and ready to use, including peace, hope, love, and weave. Original woven pangrams (sentences that contain all the letters of the alphabet) illustrate the letters. The book also includes a tutorial for using Excel to create graphs.
