Anyone can be a calligrapher on short order with these streamlined techniques for learning the basics of the art. Calligraphy A to Z offers improved methods that shrink the learning curve and bring aspiring calligraphers immediate satisfaction. Its innovations include: a technique that allows you to form all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks with just a few basic strokes (most books make you learn 70 different forms!); emphasis on the structural elements of lettering--instead of imitating samples, you learn a basic-stroke method that focuses on the structural elements common to all letters; and an easier-to-learn technique that yields more personal, creative, and beautiful results.
