Before I start this review can I say I LOVED THIS BOOK!!

I love calligraphy and wanted to know more about it. That’s where this book comes in!

“The Complete Photo Guide to Hand Lettering and Calligraphy” tells about different pens, inks, tools, and styles. It tells different pen types and provide details about which pen type would be suitable for different styles. It also mentions inks and also tells which ink would be suitable for beginners. Details about different types of papers, paints, colours and fonts. It also teaches how to create your art and calligraphy on your notebook, tote bag and plates (just to name a few).

Other than traditional tools and mediums, the book also provide details about electronic devices and software where you can work for digital calligraphy. The book has all this and much more!

Worksheets are also given in the end.

    1. Hi Lauren!
      I agree with you.
      And the photography was amazing.
      I tried to implement some of the Calligraphy I learned from the book. I would soon be sharing that in my “All About Books” Section of the blog.
