Nice introduction June 12 2007
By T. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just wanted to say that I recently purchased this book and am pleased with it. The book has a nice structure to it and helps walk me through everything from getting the tools of the trade, to building my confidence. For someone with my complete lack of experience, this book was exactly what I needed. Some of the other books I've found have been somewhat slim on explanation, or a poor choice for a tutorial. While it doesn't have the full suite of letter forms inside it that others may have, it seems to have the major ones I'd like to start with, and is a great way to get started. I suspect that someone with experience already would find this book somewhat too basic.

I would have given this book five out of five, were it not for the fact that I really have nothing else to compare it to. As well as the fact that the pages are not really suited to practise on as they are of a newsprint type quality. For those who wish to begin with calligraphy, I suggest using this book to get started with without reservation.

Cheers,

t.

Moving beyond "Dummies" Oct. 12 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is great for the beginner who doesn't mind being seen with a book for Dummies. The explanations are clear and there is even help for the left handed calligrapher. The illustrations help a lot. Although there are some different fonts to work with the selection has been kept to the simpler types. It is a good way to get started with the art of beautiful writing.

Good beginner book July 24 2007

It has little depth to it but for the beginner is quite good. Better than many beginner calligraphy books.

Calligraphy for Dummies was definitely for me Aug. 16 2008
By Courtney Garrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was fantastic. It supplied all the information needed to begin calligraphy, including how to set up your lap board for an easier beginning writing experience. I really don't feel I would ever have been able to complete the projects without the help and guidance of this book. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the beginning stages of calligraphy.

Jim Bennett does it again! Feb. 11 2009
By Jacqueline B. Kayan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Calligraphy for Dummies" is excellent. The author, Jim Bennett, is not only a writer but also a teacher. The book makes an outstanding textbook--either for use by an individual or a group. Both the text and the illustrations are very clear and easy to understand. In my opinion, there's not another calligraphy book available that even comes close in information and clarity for a beginner in the ancient art of beautiful writing.
