Modern Calligraphy

Learn modern script calligraphy from an in-demand calligrapher and wedding invitation designer.

Modern Calligraphy is a book for people who wish to create their own unique calligraphy style using free-form, mix-and-match lettering. Even though the art of calligraphy is centuries old, it doesn't have to be old, stuffy, or pretentious. The techniques and processes taught in these pages make it fun, fresh, and distinctive.

You'll begin by learning all the basics of calligraphy — from how to gather the proper tools to how to write your first letterforms. You'll also find clear, step-by-step instructions for a variety of calligraphy projects, including wedding invitations and personal stationery. Along the way, you'll make mistakes (you're not a serious calligrapher until your first embarrassing typo), learn that calligraphy and handwriting are two very different things, and find your personal style.

After mastering letterforms using a pointed pen and ink, you can take it to the next level by learning how to use watercolor and gouache, or how to digitize your calligraphy.

Author — Molly Suber Thorpe.
