Book Description

1 July 2007
With the know-how and practical guidance contained within these pages, you will learn how to use calligraphy in a wealth of elegant and stylish ways. In the introductory section, tools, materials and papers are explained and illustrated, as well as the very basics of the art: setting up, mixing ink and paint, filling the pen, posture and pen position, and making the very first strokes. The book features 12 of the most popular alphabets - from Round Foundational Hand and Roman to Copperplate - each with step-by-step photographs of the strokes required to complete the letterforms. The book progresses with more advanced techniques such as layout, spacing, design and how to display your work as well as experimental lettering and stencil spraying. Sixteen detailed projects are then presented for the reader to practise their new-found skills: making a poster, creating a wedding invitation, designing wine labels or birthday cards - to name but a few.
