About the Author
Edward Johnston (1872-1944) is regarded as one of the fathers of calligraphy and his books and teachings are credited with reviving the art of modern penmanship and lettering. The sans-serif Johnston typeface that appeared throughout the London Underground prior to the 1980s was his most prominent design. Johnston influenced a generation of British calligraphers and typographers, notably Eric Gill, and his students founded the Society of Scribes & Illuminators. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There's lots of information in this book for those who wish to move on from basic calligraphy to intermediate or more advanced stuff. However, this book may prove a little daunting for a beginner. But I would nevertheless recommend it to anyone who is serious about calligraphy.
This is the bible of lettering. Buy two copies, as your first will wear out, you just keep on referring to it.
