Simply Calligraphy

Simply Calligraphy: A Beginner's Guide to Elegant Lettering - Judy Detrick

This is is very easy to follow. My husband does not do well with books in the "How To" family, but this worked well for him. He does tattoos, his downfall is lettering. A friend of his recommended learning to write calligraphy style do to the way you hold the needle in comparison to how you hold a calligraphy pen. It helped a lot.

 

I really recommend this book. The way the different letters are grouped together with similar letters written with the same motions is nice. Brush strokes are labelled in a 1,2,3 manner.

 

 

I recieved a copy copy of this book through Blogging for Books.
