This thorough workbook provides a complete course in calligraphy, from basic alphabets and letterforms to templates, from spacing and layout to complex projects. It's big, it's complete, and it's filled with the most detailed lessons on calligraphy anyone will ever need. A complete overview of the basic tools explains what each pen can do, and how inks and paints can affect the quality of the work. Several tasks are laid out for students to master: They can start with “skeleton letters,” and then gradually try more complex forms, including Rustica, Antique Uncials, and Carolingian. Prepare for a project by understanding line spacing, centering, layout, pasting up, and using color. Then, see how to make giftwrap, fashion handmade greeting cards, design posters, and copy poetry and prose.
