Kids everywhere will be grabbing their calligraphy pens, because this follow-up to the wildly successful Calligraphy for Kids offers them even more artful fun.

With just a little practice, and 1-2-3 Calligraphy to guide them, children can make eye-catching signs, design their own personal stationery, address colorful envelopes in elegant script, and create pictures and other decorations to hang on the wall. Inside this guide, budding calligraphers will find new alphabets--and new ways to render the alphabets they already know--as well as fresh techniques and projects. There's coverage of the basic rules of layout; a review of some of the fundamental skills; advice on changing the weight of italic letters and forming italic capitals; and an introduction to both Swing and Modern Gothic handwriting.
