Calligraphy

  • Complete Guide to Calligraphy

    In this comprehensive introductory guide to calligraphy, author Vivien Lunniss teaches readers how to master all the principal families of writing hands, from uncials and Anglo-Saxon scripts, to Roman capitals, blackletter and gothic, and even on to modern freeform 'drawn' lettering. Readers will learn how the hands originated, where and when they were used, and how to write and practice them, picking up fluency and flair through a series of exercises aimed at perfecting the style until writing becomes second nature and a real pleasure.
