I am currently doing a research on Armenian calligraphy and would like to ask for help locating any useful information. Anyone knows any Armenian artists who draw calligraphic work? Might you have any literature on Armenian alphabet (only books, please, nothing from what already exists on a web, I have searched it all)? Any graphics, photographs of Armenian manuscripts with calligraphic work? Any books on Armenian typography (that one is especially important, as it has illustration of the sequence of strokes)?
I want to compile a professional guide for calligraphic work in Armenian for an upcoming Encyclopedia of World Calligraphy which will be published in US.
I will draw all the examples myself and will need to illustrate all known styles of Armenian scripts.
"Erkatagir" Երկատազիր (iron script)
"Boloragir" Բոլորագիր (round script)
"Shchagir" Շխագիր (cursive script)
"Notragir" Նոտրագիր. (notary script)
If you might have any information on those scripts, please be so kind to forward it to me. This is a good opportunity to revive some of the calligraphic tradition and I would love to get some help doing it. All the credits for contributed material will be happily provided.
Please write, (forward to anyone who might be of help)
