What is included with this book?

Summary

Indispensable for aspiring calligraphers of any level, this sourcebook features a comprehensive, step-by-step, visual analysis of all major calligraphic techniques, from foundational hand and uncials to gothic, italic, and copperplate. Not a standard calligraphy project manual, the book teaches the techniques for each type of lettering and shows how composition, color, and borders help decorate finished manuscripts. The history of calligraphy and how it is used in everyday life is explained, and a section on how calligraphy can be used with other media as well as an inspirational gallery of completed works is also included.
