    1. Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering by Lisa Engelbrecht Genre: Calligraphy and craftISBN: 9781592536443Published: September 1st 2010 by Quarry BooksRating: 5This book was absolutely amazing. I have loved calligraphy since I was eleven.This book had everything: information on supplies and tools and instructions on how to build your own tools. There are chapters on different calligraphy styles, like classic calligraphy, vintage styled alphabets, raw dry-brush techniques, funky fun letters, calli [...]


    2. One of my go to books, inspiring, full of ideas , clear instructions but also leaves open areas for your own interpretations and inspirations. I own a copy and i bought it right from the author, she signed it in beautiful calligraphy, signing it as i asked her to ( can't remember off the top of my mind) but it was something like "Art on ANg"This book is all about mark making, fonts, techniques, and how to do neat awesome fun graffitti/writing


    3. This book features beautiful, interesting ideas and projects you can make; but it is lacking in regards to the classical calligraphy instruction. There is some instruction on the classical "old school" calligraphy, but it mostly focuses on "hip and urban" stuff which is just as good to learn about. I recommend getting an additional book on classical calligraphy that has more worksheets in it if you want to broaden your skills in learning the basic lettering.This book features some mixed media le [...]


    4. Really loved this book. I really loved this book. Particularly the parts on brush lettering. I am sure some day I may revisit calligraphy but for now I am having way to much fun Werth brush lettering and hand lettering. I especially liked the chapter on DIY tools.



    5. A very enjoyable book on hand lettering and modern calligraphy. The examples shown are very inspiring, too.



    6. I appreciated that the author illustrated the strokes which was really helpful when I tried to mimic the fonts.


    7. Great resource for calligraphy information! The author covers everything from the supplies needed to the types of calligraphy.There are plenty of pictures included that are super helpful as well.


    8. This is the best book for teaching the basics of calligraphy. It has everything from the type of supplies (special paper & pens) needed to start calligraphy as a profession, basic strokes to start practicing & types of calligraphy too for introducing to calligraphic students. Also, how certain letters are more roundish or edgy depending on which type of calligraphy style you want to learn. . There is much much more to get your pens moving smoothly on the paper. You have to read it to kno [...]


    9. Probably the only calligraphy book I'll ever read, because I'm not actually interested in calligraphy. Picked this up to learn more about how to use a dip pen and india ink, which I plan to use for drawing. I learned what I wanted to know and much more, including how to make my own "pens" and a variety of techniques to try in my mixed media artwork. An informative and inspiring book.


    10. This is one of my "go to" books for lettering. Engelbrecht enthusiastically shares advice for both materials and design, encouraging letterers to have fun with the process. Lots of pictures, font ideas, and simple tips for individualizing a lettering project.
