The court of Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II produced nothing more amazing than the Mira calligraphiae monumenta, a brilliant demonstration of two arts - calligraphy and miniature painting. The project began when Rudolf's predecessor commissioned the master calligrapher Georg Bocskay to create a model book of calligraphy. A pre-eminent scribe, Bocskay assembled a vast selection of contemporary and historic scripts ranging from the latest Italic and humanist writing to antique Roman and German Gothic. Many were intended not for practical use but for virtuosic display - lines filled with vines, mirror writing, and tiny micrography. Years later, at Rudolf's behest, court artist Joris Hoefnagel filled the spaces on each manuscript page with images of fruit, flowers, insects, and other natural minutiae. The combination of word and image is rare and constitutes one of the marvels of the Central European Renaissance. The manuscript is now in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum. A selection from its pages is presented here as testimony to the artistic imagination and skill of its creators.

Featuring more than 25 pen projects and using the latest hardware kits on the market, this helpful how-to book journeys from turning basic ballpoint pens to creating complex fountain pens. Beginning with a simple yet very elegant ballpoint, the steps in its creation are explained in detail while subsequent chapters and projects add additional complexity and techniques. The author's original designs for many unique tools are also included, discussing spiraling jigs in both the past and present and demonstrating their ability to produce the popular rope design as well as straight fluted or faceted pens. With tutorials on both wood and metal lathes, this guide goes beyond step-by-step processes, encouraging wood turners to use their imaginations and adopt this classic art as their own.
