No fancy computer typeface can ever replace the subtle artistry and personalized expressiveness of calligraphic handwriting. And here's the proof: a beautifully designed, easy-to-understand guidebook that takes the reader from the basic pen-strokes of traditional hands such as Uncial and Italic to the proud completion of 15 breathtaking projects. The author, an acknowledged master of this classic art, shows how to achieve the essential coordination of hand and eye, and how to apply the aesthetic principles that shape both the individual characters and the completed page.
