Gr. 6-12. Winters' excellent, clearly explained guide to calligraphy begins with a survey of materials, a glossary, and suggestions on posture and pen and paper positions. Succinct chapters showing how to create a variety of alphabets follow. Winters, an art professor and calligraphist, folds fascinating history into her expert instructions. Her clean layouts showcase beautifully rendered examples and practical exercises, and appended worksheets can be copied for experiments. Final chapters that present ideas for creating handmade projects will be a hit with many young artists. An unusual, handsome resource that adults may want, too. Gillian Engberg
