Maryanne Grebenstein has put a TON of thought into this book and how well its laid out. The tear out sheets in the back are fantastic! The only one I've come across that has them (and I have MANY calligraphy books). I recommend this book above all the others out there. Teen and Young Adult.

For anyone who’s ever been wowed by the writing on a wedding invitation rather than the reception...for anyone who’s ever studied the calligraphy on a wine list rather than the chianti...this is the ideal book! It’s a comprehensive calligraphy course between covers, taught by a distinguished calligrapher. From ninth-century Uncial to fifteenth-century Gothic to nineteenth-century Script, the book explains the development of the major “hands” and shows how to master the basics. Topics include supplies, strokes, pen angles, spacing, design and layout, italic lettering, Carolingian lettering, foundational lettering, plus much, much more. Therapeutic and rewarding, calligraphy is popular both as an art form and a form of relaxation—and here’s the perfect no-fuss, no-muss starter course!

My son likes this book once it was pointed out that it teaches technique. He wanted something that went to showing a lot of different, really fancy writing. This book does not go so much into variety, but is good for a beginner to grasp a concept of technique that helps them move on to other things.

I was new to calligraphy when I purchased this book. I was interested and wanted to gain a little knowledge and to be given an introduction to calligraphy without frustration. This is a workbook that provides a wealth of knowledge and inspires the artist to work at calligraphy. The history behind calligraphy and the different styles are brought to light. Documents are provided as examples and the author includes her own pieces of work. The work is gorgeous and inspirational. Tips for how to begin, how to hold the pen, types of ink and paper, practice, clear instructions and advice, and much more are given. This book is a steal! I will look into more documents by the author of this informative and practical workbook. So much work, effort, and thought went into making this a very practical resource.

Im left handed and I do calligraphy to improve my writing.This book is very well done and helpful.Note to the left handed-there are 2 ways to do this;either write in a hooked style from above and complete the strokes backwards or buy a left handed nib and write from underneath.If you chose the latter style then get the left handed calligraphy book.If youre old and set in your ways like me the hook style is easier to do.Either way, this is a good book to have.You just have to translate it into left handed just like you do everything else in the universe. ;)

A fantastic book for the beginner wanting to learn the art of calligraphy! It's been awhile since I've done calligraphy and bought this because of the templates in the back. When I received it I was very impressed. The author explains all the different types of calligraphy and what you will need as a beginner....if you would like to get more involved, she does list other materials needed. I like the option of being able to lay the book on a shelf and the use of the spiral binder! It's surprising how that little thing is such a big help! Well worth the money!

As someone who is a rank amateur this book is everything I wanted in order to learn which equipment to consider and how to use it. The historical illustrations are beautiful and colorful as well as educational. There are practical worksheets and removable reusable guide sheets. The techniques taught range from basic to advanced. This book alone can take me a long way and entertain me for a long time. The size is just big enough without being awkward to handle, and the spiral binding is so practical and nicely designed with the outside spine having a hard cover.

I used this to teach myself how to write with a calligraphy pen before using the new skill to write my guests' names on the place setting cards for my wedding reception. In my humble opinion, they turned out great, but that was only because this book was very helpful in showing me what I needed to do!

I'm a calligrapher and bought this book early in my journey. Although I focus on pointed pen right now, this book is a good introduction to broad nib lettering and I look forward to using it more fully.
This book has several styles of calligraphy and really goes into detail about how to create the letters. It also gives good advice about what types of paper to use as well as what pens a person will need. I also liked the section about creating a layout for a calligraphy project. With many illustrations and tips, I am eager to get started. I really like the removable transparent guide sheets at the end of the book. They create an excellent way to practice each style. The spiral binding allows a person to actually practice the strokes by placing a piece of paper over them. This is a great book for beginners!!!!!
