I looked for quit a while trying to decide what calligraphy book to buy and ended up going to a large bookstore in our area so I could look through the books in person, they had approximately a dozen different calligraphy books. This one stood heads above the rest.
I am about 1 month into calligraphy and don't plan to go beyond the fountain pen type pen. But if I do decide to go further this book gives information plentiful, varied and detailed enough that I could set up a professional workshop if I chose to go there in the future.
The book is very comprehensive. It covers gilding, pens from fountain to dip pens, papers , how to setup and prepare a workspace, needed tools. This section you can following completely or easily determine how much, how little and what you do or do not need for your personal needs.
I love that the book addresses holding the pen for right and left handers. There are 10 alphabets to choose from learn one or all and concise instructions on how to make each letter, ie... pen placement and stroke order.
Other areas covered are doing calligraphy on colored papers, mixing colored inks to make new colors, how to choose color combinations. Also included is the pretty stuff, flourishing, which are all the pretty curly cues and such that you may want to add to a letter, a line or a border. Ornamentation of say like a capital letter at the beginning of a book, an invitation, or announcement where they make a beautiful capital letter and then add pretty designs like leaves, flowers, these specially flourished capital letters are often contained within a square then embellished with ornamentation and different colors, even gold leafing or embossing, which of course the book covers.

I FINALLY received my book!! I ordered the book in October and it was shipped from Auction Liquidators, the wrong book (The Castaways). So I went round and round with them trying to get a tracking number and so on. I paid 12.77 from Auction Liquidators. After a month they finally credited my account. So I decided to order the book again. This time it shipped from Amazon, only problem. It was $4.00 more!! Not sure why.

Other than that. The book is very informative, gives you ideas of how to use calligraphy for bookmarks and other projects.
