1 Reviewen

If you think creating beautiful and graceful calligraphy requires years of training and a closet full of fancy pens and exotic inks, think again! Here, the authors explain how anyone can use simple tools and materials found in ordinary craft stores, as well as Q-tips, sponges, and other common items, to produce outstanding results. They provide examples of a dozen alphabet styles, as well as many decorative details. Color photography reveals more than merely the necessary brush and pen techniques--it also shows a vast range of ideas for using calligraphy in new and surprising ways.

Touches on several different styles. Good beginners book, not as interesting for the more advanced calligrapher. Covers the basics. Volledige review lezen
