Synopsis

Synopsis

For anyone who’s ever been wowed by the writing on a wedding invitation rather than the reception...for anyone who’s ever studied the calligraphy on a wine list rather than the chianti...this is the ideal book! It’s a comprehensive calligraphy course between covers, taught by a distinguished calligrapher. From ninth-century Uncial to fifteenth-century Gothic to nineteenth-century Script, the book explains the development of the major “hands” and shows how to master the basics. Topics include supplies, strokes, pen angles, spacing, design and layout, italic lettering, Carolingian lettering, foundational lettering, plus much, much more. Therapeutic and rewarding, calligraphy is popular both as an art form and a form of relaxation—and here’s the perfect no-fuss, no-muss starter course!
