From ninth-century Uncial to fifteenth-century Gothic to nineteenth-century Script, the book explains the development of the major “hands” and shows how to master the basics. Topics i

    The BEST Calligraphy Book EVER!, January 28, 2007
    This review is from: Calligraphy: A Course in Hand Lettering (Spiral-bound)

    This has to be the best Calligraphy Book. It lays flat and will also “hang” off the top of your drawing table. The descriptions and explanations are well thought out and easy to understand. Maryanne Grebenstein has put a TON of thought into this book and how well its laid out. The tear out sheets in the back are fantastic! The only one I’ve come across that has them (and I have MANY calligraphy books). I recommend this book above all the others out there.

    Great for beginners and advanced calligraphers, December 9, 2007
    This review is from: Calligraphy: A Course in Hand Lettering (Spiral-bound)

    Beautifully and intelligently executed, both beginners and advanced calligraphers will find value in this book. The scripts are rendered beautifully with excellent instructions and diagrams for practice as well as final lettering. It is spiral bound – a thoughtful touch for a book that will be left open to certain pages for lengthy periods of time. There are pull-out templates to use on a light-box underneath paper or vellum. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It’s well worth the price and could replace an entire bookshelf of less worthy tomes.

    I’ve never done calligraphy before but always been curious. I picked up this book and found that I learned much more quickly than I expected. I would recommend it. The clear plastic sheets at the back are especially useful in helping keep a consist letter size.
