A successful calligrapher and artist teaches you the skills of lettering beautifully--and gives projects to show them off

In today's digital age, people crave something personal and handmade--so hand lettering and calligraphy are becoming more popular than ever. If you're eager to get in on the trend, artist Kathy Glynn will help you master the three main techniques--hand lettering, brush lettering, and pointed pen calligraphy--and create work that's expressive, exquisite, and romantic. After explaining the basics, Kathy explains how to combine styles, add embellishments, and even digitize lettering. More than 20 projects include wedding invitations, temporary tattoos, address stamps, glass etching, and a custom family tree.
