Creating CalligraphyBook - 2017 | First edition
For years, handwriting has been in danger of becoming lost to keyboards and smartphones, with few of us picking up a pen to do much more than scrawl a shopping list or take hasty notes in meetings so, for professional calligrapher Betty Soldi, this increase in interest is welcome. In Inkspired, Betty encourages you to reconnect with handwriting and discover the calming, creative joy of calligraphy. The book contains guidelines and practice pages, and its calligraphy-friendly paper and unique lie-flat binding mean you can write straight into the book with ease. Once you have had a go at her own Alphabetty of calligraphic letters, you are encouraged to develop your own individual style, with a section of projects, from invitations to writing on China. Learn to embrace mistakes, play around with new ideas Betty encourages practising not just with pen and paper, but writing on mirrors in lipstick or etching messages into a plant leaf and express yourself with beautiful lettering and flourishes. Betty's mantra is Practice makes progress, and with her infectious enthusiasm and invaluable guidance, even the most inexperienced of inkers will find their scribbles transformed.
