Margaret Shepherd makes this ancient art form accessible in a completely hand-lettered technical guide that will:* Provide context for calligraphy as an art, exploring the rich tradition of hand-lettering and mapping the evolution of the most popular styles.* Give detailed technical advice on choosing pens, paper, and inks, setting up your workspace, mastering various pen angles, along with step-by-step illustrations to guide you as you practice.* Explain which alphabets are appropriate for different forms of writing.
