This book covers all aspects of undertaking Calligraphy. It covers colours, nibs, holders and practice sheets. Not just initials but also drawing shapes, flower shapes, projects. Fantastic.

Modern Take on Calligraphy

The Workbook is a brilliant concept. Very easy to use. Being a beginner I found the layout logical and educational. You need to accept that the book pages will be spoiled or copy pages to work with.
I now need to get properly equipped!
