This in-depth introduction for beginners presents core alphabets in styles to suit every occasion.

Each letter is analyzed in detail, enabling beginners to master the form. Includes step-by-step photo sequences showing the strokes of each letter, handwriting rhythm exercises, and hints and tips on spacing.

She is a co-author of The Encyclopedia of Calligraphy and Illuminated Letters and The Beginner’s Guide to Calligraphy.
