Calligraphy is a lettering art that anyone can learn with some practice and patience. This book will teach you everything you need to know to get started in modern calligraphy. You’ll learn about the supplies you’ll need such as pen holders, nibs, inks and papers. You’ll master different calligraphy techniques such as holding the pen, dipping the pen into ink, and understanding ink flow and pen pressure. Lettering guide sheets are provided to help you practice the letterforms. A troubleshooting section outlines common issues that every calligrapher deals with and how you can fix them. Once you’ve learned the basics, a photo gallery of projects will inspire you to create your own works of art!

Buyer’s Guide


Contrary to popular belief, calligraphy and handwriting are two very different things (although learning calligraphy will help you improve your handwriting). What makes calligraphy unique is the variation of thick and thin lines—the contrast within the letterforms.

I believe that anyone at any age can learn how to write beautiful calligraphy. It just takes practice and patience. I first fell in love with calligraphy and began teaching myself when I was 12, after I found a book at my grandma’s house. Maybe you want to learn how to address your own wedding invitations, or maybe you just want to take your snail mail to the next level. No matter what your reason is, it’s never too late or too early to learn.

Old-school calligraphy was all about perfection. What I love about modern calligraphy

    For absolute "Beginners" sure... Unfortunately I did not find much information about calligraphy that was of particular depth. I've been a calligraphy neophyte for the last few months and have found reddit forums, instagram users, periscope streams, etc, that all provide the same information contained in this book. I would have loved more depth. Though, there's a redemption code at the end for some guidesheet PDFs at the end of the book, which is nice.
