    Calligrapher and me

    I have not read the book yet but a friend of mine has and had to learn from it to write Calligrapher on her wedding invations. Well one day we met to send the invations out( she wanted some help because there were alot) i lokked in the evenlope( not knowing that she wrote them) and said to her where did you get this done? She said that she did learning from this book. So I am going to buy one for my self because i think it is a great way to show off your writting . Once i do read, I am sure that I will be content, and I advise you all to do the same if you are a beginner a Calligrapher.
