Calligraphy: A Complete Guide

Learn and master the beautiful and varied art of Western calligraphy with Calligraphy: A Complete Guide. This lavish book, which includes 450 color photos, contains all the information you need to get started in calligraphy, as well as advanced techniques.

The book begins with tutorials on choosing quality tools, understanding the structure of letters, and learning basic calligraphy strokes. You then move to explore 40 different alphabets drawn from throughout the rich history of Western calligraphy — from classic Roman letters to the intricate traditions of the Middle Ages to the simple, creative styles of today. Finally, you are shown how to embellish your calligraphy with decorative dropped capitals, Celtic knotwork, scrollwork, flourishes, and more.

For the more advanced artist, further instruction covers the addition of color, creating abstract and ornamental calligraphy designs, and even how to carve calligraphic lettering in wood and stone.

For any aspiring or experienced calligrapher, Calligraphy: A Complete Guide is an essential reference.
