Calligraphy Practice Book
Learning calligraphy? Practice your handwriting in this notebook that provides upper and lower case letters to practice, some words to model, and lots and lots of lined pages. If using a nib, tools needed include a nib holder, a pointed nib for Copperplate lettering, a broad-edged nib for Italic lettering and an ink bottle (try item #041736.) Or you can keep it simple and use a calligraphy marker. The lines are pretty close together, requiring a fine hand to write pretty small (8mm.) A dotted midline helps with lower case letters. Also included are 16 labels (6x4cm) with various colored borders and 3 faint dotted lines. You could use these as address labels or gift tags. Instructions are in English and German. Sc, 40pp, 6.5x8.5". ~ Sara
The word "calligraphy" is drawn from the Greek "kalligraphia" or "beautiful writing." Calligraphy is a respected art in many cultures, including Western, Chinese, Persian, Arabic, Hebrew, Korean and Indian.
Calligraphy continues to flourish in the forms of wedding and event invitations, font design and typography, religious art, and documents. The practice of calligraphy is experiencing a resurgence, as people turn to writing on paper to relax and reflect, and experience a more intimate connection with words, forms and personal artistic expression.
