Calligraphy at its finest is an art, but these techniques enable anyone to master a simple yet elegant script for everyday use. The trick: the way every single stroke in every single letter is taught step by step, in sequence. The beginner is never overwhelmed by the process; it's unintimidating and easy to grasp.  And, as each chapter covers a new alphabet or creative idea, it adds to the apprentice calligrapher's arsenal: Gothic, Italic, Uncial, and more.  Flourish a pen, pencil, or brush and?using the striking examples as a guide?enhance scrapbook pages, greeting cards, photos, framed items, and gift tags and bags. Worksheets are provided, and there's advice on tools and materials, brush lettering, and shortcuts to spacing and linework.
