An Introduction to Motif Notation

book coverAnn Hutchinson Guest 2007

It is anticipated that this book will be a welcome guide for those becoming interested in using Motif Notation. Note that Motif Notation is also called Motif Writing. Some do still refer to it as Motif Writing as well as Motif Description.
