The modern use of calligraphy for wedding invitations and graphic design has breathed new life into the ancient art of decorative lettering, but beginners can be overwhelmed by the vast array of techniques needed for mastering calligraphy. Complete Calligraphy Skills provides step-by-step instruction along with online tutorials that expand on the content of the book, making this one of the most comprehensive and user-friendly calligraphy manuals available. Inside, readers will find:
  • A history of calligraphy, from its early beginnings to its 21st-century revival
  • Guidance on the essential tools and material needed to get started
  • An overview of the basic principles, letter parts and weights, pen angle, and more
  • Exercises for 20 fonts, from uncials and Anglo-Saxon scripts, to Roman capitals, gothic, and even modern freeform “drawn” lettering
The online movie tutorials highlight the key alphabet styles and can be accessed through QR codes and URLs and will demonstrate how each letter is created. More than 300 full-color illustrations.
