With Calligraphy Magic you'll learn the art of decorative lettering and discover simplified calligraphy techniques. Starting with the basic pen & ink strokes to create each letter, we'll build up to flourishes and embellishments for a variety of alphabet styles. Twelve step-by-step projects show you how to use color and gilding to ornament letters, how to paint classic Celtic knotwork designs, and how to use calligraphy to decorate items such as wedding invitations, fantasy artwork, logos and more. Ten complete and various alphabets give you even more options. I also include a complete chapter on using a computer to create your own lettering fonts! I'm very excited to have finally completed this book and I hope you find it useful and you enjoy it!
Calligraphy Magic makes a wonderful lettering companion book to my Art of Celtic Knotwork book, which teaches the basics of Celtic art and design. Available in a full color print edition, and also an instant PDF eWorkbook version, please check them out and complete your collection!
