Modern Calligraphy - The Book
Earlier this year I was approached by Orion publishers to write a book about Modern Calligraphy, and I am delighted to announce that it will be released 1st June 2017!
It will be available in all good bookshops from 1st June but if you want to make extra sure you get a copy you can pre-order it here!
Modern Calligraphy is a step-by-step guide for those wanting to learn this super trendy art form, and unlock your creativity to boot. The book will guide readers through the first steps of pointed pen calligraphy, encouraging you to spend an hour a week developing and practicing a new skill. Designed for complete beginners, the book offers tips, tricks and techniques on the materials required and how to use them properly, how to approach the modern calligraphy letterforms, and most importantly explores ways to develop your own modern calligraphy style. You'll learn about inks and how to make your own, how to use a brush to create calligraphy, and what you can do with your skill - from envelope addressing and event stationery to beautiful dinner party menus and gift tags.
It's written for you, our fantastic community of modern calligraphy learners and enthusiasts, and I hope you will find it an essential tool as you start or continue your journey into modern calligraphy. I am so happy to be part of this amazing community, to have met so many people from all over the world through our workshops and to have seen you develop and improve your skills. You all inspire me!
