In a digital age, it's easy to move away from handwriting, but even the most artistically stunted can create beautiful text blocks on gift cards and in their own journals. The stylish design of this book—along with the interior photographs, illustrations, and diagrams—make the learning process simple and fun for beginners and provides useful tips for more advanced readers.
The book also describes the equipment needed to be an excellent calligrapher, including the paper, measuring tools, pens, brushes, and inks.
Teach yourself a skill with versatile and practical uses and bring a little bit of beauty onto the page.
