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.

The content in it is on a very basic level and doesn't go into a lot of detail on specific details on how to write in all the styles of calligraphy. However, it is a great starting point for one to get acquainted with the styles!

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
