Develop your own calligraphy style! Calligraphy expert and founder of Artsynibs Studio Joyce Lee shows you how in The Joy of Modern Calligraphy: A guide to the art of beautiful writing. She defines modern calligraphy as "an individual's artistic take on the traditional scripts". She encourages mastering the basics before bending the rules. Take her 30-Day Calligraphy Challenge - write daily for 10 minutes. Don't have a pen? Pencil will work just as well. A quick warm up is encouraged (1 to 2 minutes), followed by 10 minutes of practice with a pencil or nib and ink. Learn and practice - basic strokes, lowercase, uppercase and words. An envelope of 20 large practice sheets is included to write on, photocopy or overlay. Download extra practice sheets using the provided link. Note that single sheets are easier to use than book bound. Her mindful approach to calligraphy involves stepping back and looking at breathing, tension, posture, planning, caffeine, practice and expectations. Learn about nibs, inks and papers and how to use them. She recommends the modestly priced Manuscript modern calligraphy set to begin. It includes a pen holder, 3 pointed nibs and a bottle of ink. In 8 simple projects see how your own beautiful lines of ink transform even the smallest piece of paper - envelopes, gift tags, artwork, labels, journals, notes and more. This stylish set - book and practice sheets - are housed in a hardback folder with an elastic band closure. The table of contents is listed below. Publisher Search Press will release this 128 page hardcover set on September 14, 2021. It is available now for pre-order. Get your copy below!
