National Art Library modern calligraphy collection

Kildare, Ireland, June 1877. NAL reference no. MSL/1984/69/2, NAL pressmark: PC 1/5 The National Art Library at the Victoria and Albert Museum has long had a special interest in calligraphy and lettering. In the 19th century it collected all the standard manuals on the subject, from those by the 'illuminating designer' Victor Touche, The Handbook of Initial Letters that first came out in 1863, and the works by Digby Wyatt and W.R.

What we usually refer to as modern calligraphy stemmed out of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the last years of the 19th century. Other people associated with the Arts and Crafts Movement that took an interest in calligraphy were Walter Crane and C.F.A. The V&A acquired its first example of Johnston's work in 1928; the National Art Library waited until 1934 before his work entered its collections.

Несколько наиболее часто задаваемых вопросов: Museum of Muslim Art India. MOMA- The Museum of Muslim Art India - is an institution to disseminate information of Art and Architecture of Muslim in India.

Museum of Muslim Art India

India is perhaps the only non-muslim country in the world to be a living museum of art and architecture with abundance. It is estimated the Delhi and it environs alone have 3000 monuments. It is also estimated that there are 100000 Muslim monuments throughout India. Most of these come under ASI(Archeological Survey of India), but unfortunately the upkeep of these monuments are not up to the mark. MOMA will be a voice for muslim art and architecture in India and will motivate a movement to preserve the cultural heritage of muslim here. The muslim monuments are internationally famous and the income generated through tourists attraction is incomparable with the other cultural monuments. It has become important now to spread MOMA and its objectives to the individuals and organisations interested in preservation of Muslim Cultural Heritage in India.
