Simply Calligraphy by Judy Detrick
A Beginner's Guide to Elegant Lettering
I read a few reviews before I picked this book to review and the reviews suggested that it was a pretty simple book and they were right. I took calligraphy classes many years ago and that is what most of this book is about, the basic italic letters in calligraphy.
However, I like having the review and it all neatly done up in one book. Plus the book did offer some way to add a bit of elegance to the letters with embellishes and flourishes. It also offered two other alphabet "fonts" though not with any direction, but they should be pretty easy to follow.
If you are looking for in depth lettering, this book is not for you, but if you are looking for a review on the basics of calligraphy, this might be just the book you need. It made me want to go do practice calligraphy again and also gave me a good idea of a fountain pen that would be good to start with. I have a true fountain pen, as in pen and inkwell, but I don't really want to start practicing with that.
This book was given me by Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
