Abstract:

Get back to the drawing board and practice your letters! This thorough workbook provides a complete course in calligraphy, from basic alphabets and letter forms to templates, spacing and layout, to complex projects. It's big, it's complete, and it's filled with the most detailed lessons on calligraphy you'll ever need. From practice techniques to a huge array of designs and ideas, it's the one book you can't be without. A complete overview of the basic tools informs you of what each pen can do, and how inks and paints can affect the quality of your work. Several tasks are laid out for you to perform and master. Start writing with "skeleton letters", and then gradually try your hand at more complex forms. Choose from Skeleton Roman, Rustica, Antique Uncials, Carolingian, and other forms of print. Prepare for a project by understanding the way you do line spacing, centering, layout, pasting up, and using color. Then, see how to make giftwrap, fashion handmade greeting cards, design posters, and copy poetry and prose. Step-by-step, you'll make your way to writing success!
