The book begins with an introduction to using a modern calligraphy pen, and will start you off very gradually with shapes, swirls and simple exercises. There are alphabet examples inside, as well as hints and tips on common mistakes. The book is by Claire Gould, a full time calligrapher since 2005, and experienced teacher of modern lettering techniques. It includes a section on brush lettering with sample alphabets, tips for writing on mirrors, chalkboards and windows, and notes on Claire's favourite equipment suppliers in the UK and US.

We think this is the BEST calligraphy kit you can buy. It contains a wealth of information and examples, as well as everything you could need to start writing in modern calligraphy.

The most important thing - enjoy learning calligraphy!
