Discover Calligraphy and Illumination pairs comprehensive art instruction with quality materials to provide a seamless creative experience for the aspiring fine artist. The 40-page project book introduces calligraphy with information about this elegant art, from the historic use of scribes to the many types of traditional pen nibs. Accomplished calligrapher Cari Ferraro guides artists through a variety of writing styles, including stately black letter hands, elegant italics, and more. The book also teaches the art of letter illumination, a way to add vibrant color to calligraphic work. With all the tools a beginner needs to start right away, this stylish kit makes the perfect gift for any aspiring calligrapher.
This edition of Discover Calligraphy and Illumination is no longer produced or sold by Walter Foster. This seems to be the original 2006 edition which has all of the original tools and materials to complete the projects in the book. For more information about the content, please visit my "Learn" section at my website listed in my biography. It makes a fine introduction to the arts of calligraphy and illumination.
