Synopsis

1-2-3 Calligraphy! Letters and Projects for Beginners and Beyond by Eleanor Winters

Kids everywhere will be grabbing their calligraphy pens, because this follow-up to the wildly successful Calligraphy for Kids (1-4027-0664-2) offers them even more artful fun. Inside they'll find new alphabets - and new ways to render the alphabets they already know - as well as fresh techniques and projects. There's coverage of the basic rules of layout; a review of some of the fundamental skills; advice on changing the weight of italic letters and forming italic capitals; and an introduction to both Swing and Modern Gothic handwriting. With just a little practice, children can make eye-catching signs, design their own personal stationery, address colourful envelopes in elegant script, and create calligraphic pictures and other decorations to hang on the wall.
