Hayes (Canada) – This review is from: Calligraphy For Dummies (Paperback) I just wanted to say that I recently purchased this book and am pleased with it. The book has a nice structure to it and helps walk me through everything from getting the tools of the trade, to building my confidence. For someone with my complete lack of experience, this book was exactly what I needed. Some of the other books I’ve found have been somewhat slim on explanation, or a poor choice for a tutorial. While it doesn’t have the full suite of letter forms inside it that others may have, it seems to have the major ones I’d like to start with, and is a great way to get started. I suspect that someone with experience already would find this book somewhat too basic. I would have given this book five out of five, were it not for the fact that I really have nothing else to compare it to. As well as the fact that the pages are not really suited to practise on as they are of a newsprint type quality. For those who wish to begin with calligraphy, I suggest using this book to get started with without reservation.

This review is from: Calligraphy For Dummies (Paperback) This book is great for the beginner who doesn’t mind being seen with a book for Dummies. The explanations are clear and there is even help for the left handed calligrapher. The illustrations help a lot. Although there are some different fonts to work with the selection has been kept to the simpler types. It is a good way to get started with the art of beautiful writing. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 18 of 18 people found the following review helpful Good beginner book, July 24, 2007 By John Parsons – Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
