Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 6-12. Winters' excellent, clearly explained guide to calligraphy begins with a survey of materials, a glossary, and suggestions on posture and pen and paper positions. Succinct chapters showing how to create a variety of alphabets follow. Winters, an art professor and calligraphist, folds fascinating history into her expert instructions. Her clean layouts showcase beautifully rendered examples and practical exercises, and appended worksheets can be copied for experiments. Final chapters that present ideas for creating handmade projects will be a hit with many young artists. An unusual, handsome resource that adults may want, too. Gillian Engberg

I've been doing calligraphy for years and lately I've taught some classes to interested beginners at a local art center and to my 9 year-old granddaughter. I find this book to be one of the best to use as a guide. It has everything a beginner needs to know ...with clear and concise instructions.

I bought this for my 8 yr old, (who is admittedly a fantastic reader, well above her grade level, so you'll have to be the judge of your child's ability) she loves it! It is well organized and the language is simple without talking down to the kids, so an adult just beginning can learn a lot from this book, too. It's recommended for grades 4 and up, but my daughter is grade 2 and does fine with it.

I will be teaching calligraphy to students in 2nd - 8th grade this summer and this will be the book I use with them. It is easy to follow. It has levels of difficulty, sheets to follow and can be bought at a reasonable price.

I gave this book to my 14 year old grandson for his birthday, among other books. It has some good examples of different styles of calligraphy for him to practice. I'm a retired art teacher and like it better than the books we used in class. Quick delivery. A+++

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though written for kids, I believe that adults will also find this book helpful. It does not talk down to you, and it gives clear and easy to understand information and directions. Because I had some practice in calligraphy before I began using this book (and because I'm impatient), I do not take it as slowly as the book suggests. I also do not bother with the guide sheets, but whether you do or not depends on how perfect you want your writing to be. Part of the reason I don't use the guide sheets is because I already have a calligraphy marker, and it is not the correct size for the sheets. However, they might be helpful (I wouldn't know, I've never used them :D). I also do not think it is necessary to switch to an actual calligraphy pen; at least, not right away. The markers work just fine, and are less messy. Other than this, the book is very helpful, and, as I said before, easy to follow.

I looked at several books in craft stores and this one was my favorite. The directions are clear, and the illustrations are attractive. It would be best for children age 10 - 14. Younger kids would need more help to understand how to form the letters, and would be using the books mostly for the illustrations, but an older child could learn how to make some nice work, even without help. Several alphabets are illustrated.

Excellent calligraphy primer. Covers everything the newbie needs to know, and then some. Highly recommended for children in second grade (7 years+). Works well when done in projects with a parent. Very good intro for the adult beginner as well.
