This informative and easy-to-follow guide to the art of creating beautiful lettering and handwriting is actually a treasury of six instruction books by Peter Taylor—Introduction to Calligraphy, Five Famous Alphabets, Scripts, Creative & Decorative Letters, Designing Letters, and Using Your Calligraphy—gathered in a laminated binder. Taylor recounts the history of this ancient skill and provides clear, concise technical information about the tools of this trade. He shows how to master classic alphabet scripts, modify and personalize these styles, and designing and create your own calligraphy styles. And he provides practical advice for creating unique invitations, certificates, cards, scrapbook pages, and other documents.
