Anyone can master the beautiful art of calligraphy, a rewarding pursuit that requires few tools and no artistic training. This practical guide―the only book that teaches the basic Italic hand (also known as Chancery Cursive) in ten easy steps―offers comprehensive instructions for beginners.
Two expert calligraphers show how to get started, with definitions of terms and suggestions for assembling materials, choosing a good writing surface, lighting the work space, posture, placement of the paper, setting up the page, and assembling the pen. After demonstrating how to make the basic calligraphic strokes, they give specific instructions for forming letters, numbers, and punctuation. Readers will also find detailed discussions of spacing and connecting letters; forming words and sentences; drawing "swash" capitals; changing nibs; using color; making corrections; and waterproofing their work.
Students will also discover an exciting variety of applications for their new skills, including addressing envelopes, making invitations, creating personalized stationery, and transcribing special texts or poems. Additional helpful features include a section of questions and answers and an appendix covering pens, inks, paper, light boxes, and other useful tools for using the basic Italic hand to create elegant works of calligraphic art.
