Not worth the money I spent on it, far better books out there on this subject. I wouldn't bother if I were you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Found the 20th edition much more helpful 9 July 2013
By Mikey - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are looking to get into lettering I would suggest you find a much older copy of this book, the 20th edition released in the early 70's has everything this book but at least 50 more styles and examples of different typefaces. The instructions seemed much easier to understand in the earlier edition as well. This is a good book though don't get me wrong. I just think people will agree with me when I say I enjoyed the type examples laid out in full alphabets with more font options.

I was looking for a calligraphy book to reference when hand addressing wedding invitations and this was a great reference. Despite raiding my dad's collection of calligraphy books, this was the one I found myself going back to again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference 9 Dec. 2013
By V. Lease - Published on
Format: Misc. Verified Purchase
I bought this when I was taking a class on Calligraphy and wanted a reference for practice. While you can find the examples online, I liked that I had the book right next to me as I was working. I could even trace if I wanted too.

This is a little, softcover handbook of a variety of calligraphy styles and instructions on how to create them. Easy to difficult, it breaks down the elements of each style. Great for beginners!
