NEWS / We're in Somerset House Gift Shop!
We were having a meeting at Somerset House last week and, of course, we popped into the gift shop on the way out. We were so happy to see Lucy's Modern Calligraphy book on the shelves.
Thank you Somerset House!
Modern Calligraphy is a step-by-step guide for those wanting to learn this super trendy art form, and unlock your creativity to boot. Written by Lucy Edmonds, the founder of Quill London, 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 letter forms, and most importantly explores ways to develop our 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.
