Book Description

7 Nov 2009
If you think creating beautiful and graceful calligraphy requires years of training and a closet full of fancy pens and exotic inks, think again! Here, the authors explain how anyone can use simple tools and materials found in ordinary craft stores, as well as cotton buds, sponges and other common items, to produce outstanding results. They provide examples of a full dozen alphabet styles, including Roman, Whimsy, Ribbon Writing, Druid, Bungalow, as well as many decorative details. Colour photography reveals more than merely the necessary brush and pen techniques - it also shows a vast range of ideas for using calligraphy in new and surprising ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just What I wanted 18 Aug 2010
I ordered this book hoping it would contain lettering styles I could learn to use in my art journals, and it fits the bill perfectly. A wide variety of alphabets and styles, none of which require that you have a degree in calligraphy, and readily accessible to the amateur like myself. It would also be ideal for the scrapbookers for whom it was intended, but has a far wider potential application. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! 23 Jun 2010
By Miss T
I saw this book in a shop at double the price! The book itself gives clear instructions, nice pictures and examples. But best of all lots of alphabet guides for you to use,to copy, trace or adapt. If you are into any kind of craft, I think you would like this great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handwriting addicts beware!!! 17 Oct 2011
Was a bit disappointed in this book as I expected it to have more content....Having been to caligraphy classes many years ago and having the basic skills for neat mentioned I expected a little bit more from this book, still it was reasonable and enabled me to brush up on forgotton skills....and gave me some good ideas....

4.0 out of 5 stars book 13 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a little gem of a book. If you need some help with lettering for a special occasion then this is the book for you.
It is very easy to follow the instructions and is very colourful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money 8 May 2012
By Sara
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The standard of the lettering examples in this book is very poor and wish I had sent it back. The book is pretty useless to me and I can't even think of anyone to give it to without insulting their creative abilities!
