Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0709087454, Hardcover)

"Contemporary Calligraphy" describes in detail and demonstrates clearly through the many accompanying diagrams, how to write formal scripts well and then adapt and vary them to enhance and interpret texts. The book begins with a historical overview of letters from the Trajan inscription of 110 AD to the Renaissance. There is a comprehensive section on tools and materials and how to begin. Then the focus is on good writing of six major scripts based on historical models, moving on to show how each script can be adapted through weight and form change, pen manipulation and pressure change to make it a lively and contemporary form. Design, layout, use of colour and information on paper are included, along with the use of alternative tools, the pencil and the pointed brush, to draw and paint letters. The book is a comprehensive and practical manual for both the beginner and for the more experienced student who wants to take their writing up to another level.
