Both hobbyists and students of design will value this easy-to-use self-teaching book.

Beginners will find basic instruction, while experienced calligraphers can extend their repertoire with letter styles that range from classic Roman to elegant contemporary styles. The author discusses—

  • Tools and materials
  • Layout basics
  • Numerals and punctuation
  • Illumination and ornamentation
  • Tips for left-handed calligraphers . . . and more

Readers will find examples by master calligraphers from past eras. This book’s spiral binding ensures that pages lay flat when opened, allowing calligraphers to study and copy each pen stroke with ease. The Calligrapher’s Bible features 350 color illustrations.
