The Encyclopedia of Calligraphy Techniques by Diana Hardy Wilson

$12.00

A Comprehensive A-Z Directory of Calligraphy Techniques and a Step-by-step Guide to Their Use

In an age when the computer print-out is the norm, calligraphy - the art of fine writing - is more than ever appreciated. This encyclopedia is the ultimate, essential reference for all practitioners of this fascinating craft, bringing all its varied elements together and presenting them in a way that will be of benefit to all aspiring calligraphers, regardless of their levels of expertise. The core of this book is its comprehensive step-by-step analyses of all the main calligraphic techniques, centred around the most popular and familiar hands, supported by inspirational examples to show the effect of the techniques in overall context. The techniques covered range from Foundational hand to Copperplate, with additional coverage of further specializations, such as split-nib writing, brush lettering and illumination. In addition, there are groundwork exercises to aid in establishing such basics as pen angle, order of strokes and paper position, while a gallery of finished examples demonstrates how leading calligraphers have utilised particular techniques effectively in their work. There is also coverage of equipment and materials, focussing on the special uses and qualities of pens, nibs, papers, inks and paints.
