Abstract

A commentary on an unpublished memoir by the calligrapher Margaret Alexander (1902-1997) drawn from the papers of Heather Child at Ditchling Museum of Art+Craft. The text was written following Johnston’s death in 1944. The commentary sets the memoir in context and discusses the additional light it throws on Johnston’s vellum bound notebook and the personal philosophy that guided him and the research that formed his posthumously published book Formal Penmanship (1971).
