Great for calligraphy beginners and experts alike, this comprehensive guide to pen and brush lettering contains instructions and references with a wealth of lettering examples and styles. It outlines nib selections for varying styles of work, spacing recommendations, design recommendations, and design information. It also offers samples of some of today's best calligraphy.
I don't have the patience to slowly put in the practice for the variety of fonts
in this book, but I enjoyed trying them out. This is a cool book if you like to
doodle or can put in the time to practice your penmanship skills. Besides that
this book contains the history of pens, inks, and lettering techniques,
instructions on holding or manipulating fountain pens to create different looks,
etc. If anything, I find this book interesting to read.
You won't find a hundred fonts in this book. Then again it doesn't promise a
hundred fonts either. There are some good fonts to help anyone get started. It
is a good book for anyone with even the slightest interest in calligraphy. Works
very well when bundled with the Speedball Calligraphy Pen Set conveniently sold
here on JetPens.com
