Complete Guide to Calligraphy by Vivien Lunniss has everything you need to know for 20 beautiful lettering styles.

n this comprehensive introductory guide to calligraphy, author Vivien Lunniss teaches readers how to master all the principal families of writing hands, from uncials and Anglo-Saxon scripts, to Roman capitals, blackletter and gothic, and even on to modern freeform 'drawn' lettering.

Readers will learn how the hands originated, where and when they were used, and how to write and practice them, picking up fluency and flair through a series of exercises aimed at perfecting the style until writing becomes second nature and a real pleasure.

The hands are demonstrated with a set of detailed step-by-step instructions for each letter, punctuation, and number sets, and in addition the book is supported by a series of teaching movie clips showing how each letter is created. Suitable for beginners up, readers will find a wide range of applications for the skills learned in this book, from invitations, greetings cards, place settings, and certificates, to beautiful illuminated wall art.
