Product Description:

You're never too old, or young, to begin learning to write calligraphy, and this book is a great step-by-step product to get you started. You can use alongside the Getty-Dubay Handwriting series for K-8 (beginning with 2nd grade) or as a stand-alone program to learn the art of calligraphy. This 64-page book is the collaboration of Inga Dubay and a group of Portland State teachers over the course of 3 years and includes instruction for writing with edged pens, italic calligraphy, and the history of the art form. 13 introductory pages explain what you will be doing in the remaining pages. There are 20 worksheets for use with a 3.5 mm nib and 9 worksheets for use with 2mm nib. 17 historical charts show the progression of letter formation since the Roman era. Ruled line pages and blank historical charts are found in the back and are the only pages that may be copied. Pages follow a progression; students practice strokes, lowercase letter families, formal capital letters, then copy Hindu-Arabic numerals, poems, quotes, Greek & Latin root words, and 50 most used English words. Use what you have learned to make beautiful cards & letters to give as thoughtful gifts.

There are some great resources at the author's website, handwritingsuccess.com. Helpful videos will take you through the worksheets in the book and a worksheet generator lets you make your own practice worksheets in both the 3.5mm and 2mm nib sizes.

The author asks that you, "Slow down, enjoy the process of calligraphy, and fall in love with letters along the way!" ~ Donna

My daughters and I have all been interested in learning calligraphy. We are going to learn together and encourage each other. Beautiful handwriting is a joy to read and to be able to write. I think these workbooks will be better than some of the books you can buy at craft stores because they are very step by step.

Better price here than elsewhere!

We've used Getty-Dubay Italic handwriting all along our homeschooling time. My children have developed legible handwriting that is limited on loops. They've been able to create their own style as well. My youngest is the only one who has shown an interest in continuing to develop her writing into a marketable skill with calligraphy.

My daughter wants to learn calligraphy. I'm hoping it helps her penmanship as well.
