This practical guide will both instruct and inspire all those seeking to master the fascinating art of calligraphy. With the know-how and practical guidance contained within these pages you will learn how to use calligraphy in a wealth of elegant and stylish ways.

Tools, materials and papers are explained and illustrated, as well as the very basics of the art: from setting up and mixing ink to making the very first strokes. The book features twelve of the most popular alphabets, each with step-by-step photographs of the strokes required. More advanced techniques such as layout, spacing, design and how to display your work as well as experimental lettering and stencil spraying are also covered. Sixteen detailed projects are then presented for the reader to practise their new-found skills on -- making a poster, creating a wedding invitation, and designing wine labels or birthday cards to name but a few.

Richly illustrated throughout and comprehensive in its scope, The Art of Calligraphy is an indispensable handbook for the calligraphic novice, which also provides a wealth of new ideas for the experienced enthusiast.
