The Complete Book of Lettering and Design

In an age of myriad computer fonts and instant communication, your handwriting style is increasingly a very personal creation. In this book, Margaret Shepherd, America's premier calligrapher, shows you that calligraphy is not simply a craft you can learn, but an elegant art form that you can make your own. Calligraphy remains perennially popular, often adorning wedding invitations, diplomas, and commercial signs. Whether it is Roman, Gothic, Celtic, Bookhand, or Italic style, calligraphy conveys class and elegance. Margaret Shepherd makes this ancient art form accessible in a completely hand-lettered technical guide that will: * Provide context for calligraphy as an art, exploring the rich tradition of hand-lettering and mapping the evolution of the most popular styles. * Give detailed technical advice on choosing pens, paper, and inks, setting up your workspace, mastering various pen angles, along with step-by-step illustrations to guide you as you practice. * Explain which alphabets are appropriate for different forms of writing. For example, the Roman alphabet works well for short, unpunctuated passages, while the Italic alphabet is more suited to informal everyday communication. * Encourage you to personalize your lettering by using variant strokes and interpreting how you would like the words to look on the page. * Inspire you with carefully chosen illustrations and examples, which bring letters to life. In Margaret Shepherd's own words, "Calligraphy trains not only your eye and hand, but your mind as well." Learn Calligraphy is the authoritative primer for this age-old craft, and will help develop a new appreciation for lettering as you discover your creative personality.

Mark Linley has been an art teacher for many years, running several very popular evening and holiday courses. Back in 1989, he was employed as a health education graphic artist in his local schools, adding a new dimension to teaching by encouraging children to learn while they draw. Mark's infectious enthusiasm and passion for drawing shines out from his highly successful series of drawing books. His motto is that, "You can learn to do anything if you think you can. If you draw something badly you are looking at it the wrong way. Anyone can draw if they want to, as long as they observe carefully". All of the books share Mark's uniquely inspirational ethos: "If you can hold a pencil, you can draw. It's a question of knowing how to look! That, and positive thinking, of course". He unlocks your hidden talents and proves that drawing can be an extremely rewarding pastime. As Mark himself says: "If you have never drawn anything except breath, don't worry; I have ways of teaching you!" From simple, but effective, 'dot stipple' techniques, to more tricky issues of perspective and proportion, Mark explains all clearly and concisely, without condescension or use of complicated terminology, so that you can just focus on enjoying your new-found skill!
