This book has been my bible in terms of medieval calligraphy. Not only does it give a great history of medieval calligraphy but it breaks down the hands beautifully. Very practical for anyone who wants to learn about and do medieval calligraphy. *Highly* recommended. ( )

First words
Calligraphy is the art of writing beautifully. It is the written letter, molded by one's concept of ultimate grace and perfect balance, a personal artistic expression as unique as the lines on the fingertips with which one holds the pen.
