Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Calligraphy is enjoying a resurgence in popularity, especially as many people now choose to create their own wedding invitations, birth announcements, and other cards, and to give them a special, personal touch. This is the ideal how-to guide for the beginner or intermediate calligrapher interested in expanding his or her repertoire with more than 50 drawing techniques. The lavishly illustrated book is a comprehensive manual that covers essential tools and materials, basic penmanship, hand position, and illumination. Each technique is illustrated by clear, full-color photographs. An extensive gallery section highlights a marvelous and inspiring range of different calligraphy effects. This new addition to our popular Encyclopedia of Art series has wide appeal for older children and adults.
