In an age of myriad computer fonts and instant communication, your handwriting style is increasingly a very personal creation. In this book, Margaret Shepherd, America's premier calligrapher, shows you that calligraphy is not simply a craft you can learn, but an elegant art form that you can make your own. Calligraphy remains perennially popular, often adorning wedding invitations, diplomas, and commercial signs. Whether it is Roman, Gothic, Celtic, Bookhand, or Italic style, calligraphy conveys class and elegance. Margaret Shepherd makes this ancient art form accessible in a completely hand-lettered technical guide that will: * Provide context for calligraphy as an art, exploring the rich tradition of hand-lettering and mapping the evolution of the most popular styles. * Give detailed technical advice on choosing pens, paper, and inks, setting up your workspace, mastering various pen angles, along with step-by-step illustrations to guide you as you practice. * Explain which alphabets are appropriate for different forms of writing. For example, the Roman alphabet works well for short, unpunctuated passages, while the Italic alphabet is more suited to informal everyday communication. * Encourage you to personalize your lettering by using variant strokes and interpreting how you would like the words to look on the page. * Inspire you with carefully chosen illustrations and examples, which bring letters to life. In Margaret Shepherd's own words, "Calligraphy trains not only your eye and hand, but your mind as well." Learn Calligraphy is the authoritative primer for this age-old craft, and will help develop a new appreciation for lettering as you discover your creative personality.

Calligraphy 2. Tracing Letters. Learn the alphabet in print writing, is a book with exercises ideal for the child to learn each letter of the alphabet, after having done a previous training with the graphomotor exercises where the child's hand, wrist, forearm and fingers were prepared for writing. In this guide, the infant will be exposed to the letters that will later form the syllables and in turn, the words. The child will strengthen the muscles of the hand and develop his or her fine motor skills. This book will not only teach the child to write uppercase and lowercase letters, it will also encourage reading. Learning to write serves as the basis for learning to read, since the child recognizes and identifies letters, making their learning faster. Writing gives voice to our inner thoughts and allows us to share them. As a form of communication, writing is extremely important. Writing focuses children on phonics, comprehension, developing their voice and communicating this perspective to others. Remember to insist the child on the correct grip of the pencil, being held with the thumb and index finger, and supported on the middle finger, being careful not to exert too much pressure on the latter. Suggest a correct body position when writing. The child may prefer to lie on his stomach than to sit in a chair, in either case, make sure the book is on a firm, flat surface. The breaks are necessary.
