Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Calligraphy is particularly attractive lettering, written very carefully. This guide looks briefly at the history of calligraphy and playing with letter forms to create patterns. Calligraphers hone their skills by practice, careful observation and more practice. Writing tools are important too, brushes and pens are the most frequently used. In addition to the specific examples of pen strokes that indicate direction and slant, there are a number of unexpected projects like a mobile and table decorations. Instructions for making two types of books look interesting. Favorite exercises are word pictures and decorative initials. It is a good general introduction for the beginner. Anyone with the slightest inclination will respond to the beautiful samples and pick up a pen and get started. 1995, Kingfisher Publications, Ages 8 to 12, $5.95. Reviewer: Kristin Harris
