The Beauty of the Hebrew Letter
From Sacred Scrolls to Graffiti
Discover the artistry of the Hebrew aleph-bet with Izzy Pludwinski’s Latest Book!
Izzy Pludwinski‘s The Beauty of the Hebrew Letter is not just a book – it’s a complete visual chronicle of the Hebrew aleph-bet’s transformation from its earliest appearance in ancient inscriptions to its contemporary representations.
This book fills a noticeable gap in the field of calligraphy, a world where Latin, Chinese, and Arabic writing have been widely explored, but beautiful Hebrew writing remains relatively untouched. Expect to discover everything from polished, consistent letterforms to wildly abstract expressions of the alphabet, including three-dimensional carved examples and even street graffiti.
“This is a treat for the eyes and mind.”
— Publisher’s Weekly
“This magnificent book is a complete joy, uplifting and energizing. It will be a classic.”
—Ewan Clayton, calligrapher
The Beauty of the Hebrew Letter is a gift that deserves to be given to all whom we love, and to all whom we wish to introduce to the breathtaking beauty of Hebrew script.
