Editorial Reviews

Barbara Jacobs
Fine penmanship may no longer be a required subject in school, but in other ways, it is experiencing a revival. Two English artists explore all the how-to's of calligraphy, from selecting appropriate materials to sewing a manuscript cover. Samples abound, as does, unfortunately, a rather crowded layout, making it difficult to follow their very clear instructions. Nonetheless, the progression from working simple letterforms to mastering cursive (or flowing) italic and versals (elaborately penned capital letters) is well thought out, enabling beginners to feel a sense of accomplishment at every step.

    Not enough

    I read this book from cover to cover. The photos are great and I think I gained more from them than the text. This book doesn't have a lesson plan, nor is it complete in the instructions. A decent book if it isn't your first. The photographs show many different finished works. Many of these finshed pieces have calligraphic alphabets that are impossible to read (not a problem with the photo, just illegible writing).
