Serious beginners who open this book can truly learn the ancient art of calligraphy in just 24 one-hour sessions.
A carefully structured beginner's course, Calligraphy in 24 Hours starts with basic instruction and progresses through sessions that challenge readers with projects of increasing difficulty.
An opening lesson introduces students to the standard calligraphy tools — pens, inks, and papers. The tutorials that follow teach the basic strokes for constructing 15 different alphabets, letter-by-letter.
Timed exercises are presented to help learners build speed and confidence, and to produce beautifully finished lettering with accuracy and consistency. Readers learn how to create professionally designed greeting cards, wall hangings, place settings, wedding invitations, and more.
The instructions are complemented with more than 350 how-to illustrations in full color.
