This has rekindled my desire to be a calligrapher. As a left hander I hade near given up with broad nib work. Still persevering with broad nibs but this book showed me there is hope with using pointed pen which still makes eye catching modern calligraphic art.

Great book for beginners and for people with experience. There is plenty of variations to try and the tips and theory are very clear and useful. So far it is my favorite about modern calligraphy, I highly recommend it.

If you already have some experience in writing Copperplate/Anglaise and hunger for some inspiration, this book is for you. Molly Thorpe gives good advice and very down-to-earth descriptions. Her style is not super exact but this has its charme. And still: you have to practice nonetheless. But a good Copperplate practice session calms your mind.
