Reseña del editor
This book explains how anyone can use simple tools and materials to create beautiful and graceful calligraphy. It also shows a vast range of ideas for using calligraphy in new and surprising ways. One of the authors has provided their calligraphy for use in the blockbuster film "National Treasure, Book of Secrets". If you think creating beautiful and graceful calligraphy requires years of training and a closet full of fancy pens and exotic inks, think again! Here, the authors explain how anyone can use simple tools and materials found in ordinary craft stores, as well as cotton buds, sponges and other common items, to produce outstanding results. They provide examples of a full dozen alphabet styles, including Roman, Whimsy, Ribbon Writing, Druid, Bungalow, as well as many decorative details. "Colour Photography" reveals more than merely the necessary brush and pen techniques - it also shows a vast range of ideas for using calligraphy in new and surprising ways.

The beginning sections about the various utensils and paper is a little overwhelming at first. I wanted to dive right in and start lettering and then I got a little overwhelmed reading about so much stuff. Finally, I decided to just read through it for info, work with what I already own for now, and maybe get more later.
Also, the talk about making grids and measuring things overwhelmed me too.
I do think it's a great idea to do what they say so you can master hand lettering to the best of your abilities.
However, I also think that for if you're doing this for fun, good at eyeballing, and it looks good in the end, you've managed what you wanted to achieve.
((Not all of us are planning to do this professionally. Most of the cards I make get thrown away by the recipients anyway. ;P))
Once you get to the actual fonts, I do have one critique:
I wish that there were little arrows showing which strokes to make in what order for the more flourishy and fancy ones, sort of like what a lot of calligraphy books do. This pertains more to the hand lettering alphabets vs. drawn (which are basically outlines).
Just my thoughts. Take 'em or leave 'em
wanted to see what was new out there, and there were a few fun alphabets that I had
not seen before. There are MANY ideas for someone new to hand lettering, lots of
great full color photos of things to make, where to use the alphas, and of course
directions on HOW to make the letters. It really is geared towards a new-2-letting
person, but I am keeping it cause you never can have too many fun art related books,
