A step-by-step visual directory of decorative techniques and an inspirational gallery of finished works.
Calligraphy can be a work of art in its own right, or it can be used to adorn anything from parchment to pottery. Discover the time-honoured skills of the calligrapher and add beauty and style to greetings cards, correspondence, dinner-table placements, and certificates.
An explanation of essential tools, equipment and basic penmanship allows even the novice to begin creating ornate works with ease. Clear step-by-step illustrations introduce each style of alphabet, from traditional gothic scripts to modern flourished italics and decorative borders.
Easy to follow instructions explain the techniques for illuminating letters, including burnishing, gilding and creating 3-dimensional effects. A gallery of inspirational works encourages experimentation with different colours, designs and materials.
