This classic book is the ideal introduction to calligraphy for the beginner. Calligraphy is a fascinating art and it doesn't require expensive equipment or much space.

In this book, Tom Gourdie, himself a past master of the art, supplies the reader with a wealth of different alphabets and shows how each alphabet may be applied by drawing, painting, carving or writing with a broad lettering pen. He also gives guidance as to what materials and equipment are most suitable for both the beginner and the rapidly improving student.

All in all, this is the perfect handbook for those wanting to develop their skill in the fascinating art of lettering.
