The Complete Engraver is a guide to the history and etiquette of engraved social stationery in America. It is the first trade book to explore engraving as a craft and venerable art form, its aesthetic traditions, and its new visual possibilities. The book is illustrated with gorgeous, original specimens of social stationery, calling cards, and monograms, and includes an instructional section that walks the reader through the engraving process and the steps required to commission engraving work today. Introductory contributions by Ellen Lupton, graphic designer, educator, and author, and Marjorie B. Cohn, internationally recognized print history expert and Curator of Prints, Emerita, Harvard University Art Museums, round out the book. Additional bonus: Two digital fonts created by the well known font company Monotype and based on engraver's style typefaces will be available for free readers of the book (through a web link or similar).
