Simply Calligraphy Review


About the Book

This simple guide to calligraphy teaches just the basics, allowing novices to jump right in and make their own wedding invitations, hand-label envelopes, write their own placecards, and explore their creative side.
With the rise of do-it-yourselfers, there is growing demand for a calligraphy guide that is much simpler than what's currently on the market. This book answers that call, with a focus on only the popular Italic alphabet rather than the scads normally covered by other books (Gothic, Uncials, Half-uncials, and so on). After learning the basic letters, this book presents an open invitation--and a bit of inspiration--to make calligraphy one's own with creative flourishes for every project and occasion. With a modern two-color design and simple explanatory text, Simply Calligraphy's unintimidating approach proves that calligraphy is as easy as picking up pen and paper. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have always found calligraphy elegant and pretty. There seems to be a lot you can do once you know how to write this way and this book is perfect for beginners!! It starts with down strokes and lines and works up to bigger letters and writing. This book is set up nicely and makes it easy to understand and practice. I wasn't overwhelmed by too much at once, which can happen with books like this. 

Highly recommend!!

I received this book from Blogging For Books for free in exchange for an honest review.
