Mastering Modern Calligraphy: Beyond the Basics: 2,700+ Pointed Pen Exemplars and Exercises for Developing Your Style picks up where my first book leaves off. It is the perfect companion for pointed pen and digital calligraphers alike, with more than 2,700 letterforms and ligatures, stroke drills, warm-up exercises, flourishes, and simple words and phrases.
Modern Calligraphy: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started in Script Calligraphy is the first book to teach contemporary, fresh, pointed pen calligraphy, breaking the learning process down into simple steps. With over 180 pages of instructions and 260 full-color photographs and illustrations, the book guides you through the process from the very beginning. It’s a bestseller in its fourth printing and was named an Amazon Favorite Craft Book. Also available in Spanish, Chinese, and eBook editions.
There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the business of calligraphy and hand lettering and, over the years, I’ve heard the same questions and run into the same misconceptions time and again. My goal in writing this book was to provide answers to these questions and to clarify misconceptions about the business side of hand lettering by creating a guide to the best practices and pricing strategies of successful, professional lettering artists.
