Summary
Calligraphy is the art of beautiful writing. Since its beginnings over 5,000 years ago, calligraphy and letterforms have played a very important part in the great cultures of the world. It is even popular with A-list movie star Brad Pitt, who presented Angelina Jolie on their first anniversary with a manuscript of twelve love poems loosely based on Shakespeare's sonnets, which he composed and penned himself in calligraphy. This step-by-step and fully comprehensive guide to calligraphy includes the key scripts of the world in three sections: Latin, Non-Latin and Pictographic scripts. From Europe, all the main Latin alphabet styles and scripts are featured - Carolingian, Roman, Uncial, Gothic, Italic and Copperplate - in addition to Greek, Russian Cyrillic, Hebrew and Arabic. The characters and scripts of Chinese and Japanese calligraphy are also revealed, including a range of inspirational characters. With full practical techniques for each, all the scripts are followed by a range of authentic projects that incorporate invitations, greetings, poetry and wisdom of the spirit from around the world. This is a step-by-step fully comprehensive guide to calligraphy across the world. It includes professional hints and tips. It contains an illustrated section on the history of calligraphy around the world. Beautiful projects are often based on the traditional uses of calligraphy
