“I have been a calligrapher since 1985 and this is the best book I have in my vast collection of calligraphy books. The quality of the book and the layout are over the top beautiful. There is something that everyone can accomplish with a little bit of practice using Ms. Thorpe’s techniques. It is beside my drawing board, light box, ink and pens. It will not go on the shelf with the others!”
—Nancy D.

“I ready a pre-release review on this book and couldn’t wait to get a copy of my own. Scouring blogs and reading posts have been somewhat helpful, but still left me wanting more details. This book has filled the gap in what’s missing from online resources. The author writes in very simple language, explains the pros and cons of different materials and really explains the how and why of using and maintaining your calligraphy paraphernalia. My knowledge has grown tremendously from reading this book and in just a few chapters I saw an improvement in my calligraphy and am getting far better use from my nibs. This is a must have resource is you’re truly interested in calligraphy.”
—Terri B.

“I love this book! I’ve been planning my wedding and wanted to add a personal touch to some of the details. I didn’t know if it would be realistic to learn calligraphy well enough, but Molly gives a great breakdown of how to get started and all the tools you need, and then goes on to more advanced techniques you can incorporate later. I especially like that there is a whole section dedicated to various ways to write each letter in different styles (when I first started, it was super helpful to trace these and get a feel for the shapes). I’ve found my newly developed “modern” calligraphy skills to be directly helpful in my daily life too: craft projects, thank you and Birthday cards, labels for my plants, etc.”
—Mary D.
