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 cotton buds, sponges and other common items, to produce outstanding results.
They provide examples of a full dozen alphabet styles, including Roman, Whimsy, Ribbon Writing, Druid, Bungalow, as well as many decorative details. "Colour 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.
