Please Weave a Message
Please Weave a Message by Linda Hendrickson includes 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.
Instead of weaving each alphabet from a to z, I Linda has composed and woven pangrams, sentences that contain all the letters of the alphabet. The book also includes a tutorial for using Excel to create graphs.
