    A must-have book for calligraphers of all levels

    I have had this book for less than a week and devoured it. All the hands are lushly illustrated. Accompanying comments and side bars add dimension to the narrative. I would love to see more cadeault/cadel and illlumination and ornamation, but why carp. This is a brilliant compliation. Put your pens down and get this book!

    A Must Have

    This book has 100 different types of lettering. The different styles of alphabet have been grouped by style so its easy to follow. Each style of letter has a "point of interest" so that the artist can distinguish what makes that particular style of alphabet unique.
    The spiral binding is great, no fighting with the pages. The only reason I did not give it five stars is that I am disappointed in the Copperplate section. It is very brief. If you already know how to do Copperplate it will suffice. I do not so I had to order a separate book. Not a big deal though.
