Love to Make


Now everyone works on computers a lot of people have forgotten that the written word can be a whole lot more special when handwritten. By handwriting you are pouring your love into the words as well. I didn't actually realize how diverse

calligraphy can be. This book takes you step by step through the process of pens, pen nibs the parts of a fountain pen and so much more! If you want to learn calligraphy then this book is a really good start. Everything is explained from a short history to the terminology that is used in calligraphy. Next comes setting up your pen and getting ready to write, including how to hold your pen.
Next comes the practicing. How you make the mark makes a huge difference to how the letters will appear. That's the reason one letter can look so different from the next.
There are beautiful pictures throughout making it clear and easy for you to follow the instructions. The whole of the first section of the book is taken up by you learning how to write calligraphy. I love the fact it even has a troubleshooting
section. As a beginner a lot of writers forget they have little tricks that can help when things go wrong.
The next section is taken up with different fonts that you can use. Now you know the break down of the strokes it's easier for you to create the examples. There is even a section on basic layouts. How you space your writing can make a huge difference to the whole effect. I think this is just as important as learning the calligraphy strokes. Next is the Project Gallery! The ideas where you can use calligraphy are beautiful! The brilliant thing is most are cheap to make! With a piece of card and calligraphy you can create some amazing things.
