Description

Calligraphy, from the Greek for 'Beautiful script' is a stimulating and moving artform, whether combined with illumination, treated as 'painting with words', or emphasising the purity and simplicity of the letters themselves. The Calligraphy Handbook is a comprehensive guide to the art of calligraphy, from selecting pens and papers, mastering different alphabets and letter construction through to designing and laying out your own work and presenting it in a bound book. Step-by-step mini-projects demonstrate the vast range of techniques involved in this expressive and satisfying artform, from brush lettering and gilding to design principles and practice. Illustrated with examples from Roman through to Medieval, Gothic, and renaissance calligraphy and accompanying details on history, The Calligraphy Handbook is both beautiful and informative. It is an essential guide and source of inspiration for calligraphers at all levels.
