Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For anyone whos ever been wowed by the writing on a wedding invitation rather than the reception...for anyone whos ever studied the calligraphy on a wine list rather than the chianti...this is the ideal book! Its 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 heres the perfect no-fuss, no-muss starter course!

Book News Annotation:

The careful and detailed instructions in this introductory guide reflect Grebenstein's premise that calligraphy requires concentration and deliberation. Grebenstein (calligraphy, Massachusetts College of Art and North Bennet Street School, Boston) describes each of the five basic alphabets used by calligraphers--Italic, Unical, Carolingian, Gothic and Foundational--and the precise use of the necessary tools. The guide includes detachable, transparent guide sheets and full-size worksheets. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
