Format: Hardcover
This book contains examples of some wonderful small-scale
paintings, along with advice on materials and techniques.
The painting subjects are mostly drawn from nature, with
very few historical examples. I'd recommend this book for
people who are interested in making their own calligraphy
or small book projects and would like to incorporate
natural subjects into their work. It is not a historical
treatment of calligraphy or illumination, but would be
a good addition for the library of those interested in
contemporary work.

Marie Angel wrote a masterpiece with this book. It is one of the few technical books I have ever read from beginning to end in one sitting. This book is a must for every serious calligrapher.
