Book Description

Dec 5 1991 Learn to step-by-step
This guide to the tools, techniques and skills needed to produce attractive lettering in a variety of styles and media begins with an historical introduction. The subsequent chapters focus on materials, fundamental technical skills and basic alphabet styles such as Roman, Gothic, Carolingian and Italic. These are followed by a description of how more complex calligraphic forms are created, and how to add the finishing touches, such as illumination, borders and motifs, and even how to create pictures and panels. Step-by-step illustrations show how lettering can be learnt in easy stages, and practical exercises and projects explain how the skills can be used to create personal stationery, maps, gift labels, certificates and greetings cards with a professional and authentic appearance.
