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.

Arabic calligraphy is at once an expression of piety, aesthetic sensibility and artistic discipline. Muhaqqaq was an early term which captured care and meticulousness in writing. It was associated with the making of manuscripts of the Qur'an-a sacred task and one which helped to give the new-Islamic order both identity and coherence muhaqqaq emerged in the eleventh certury as the name for one of the six Classical scripts. This is the first book devoted entirely to the muhaqqaq tradition. Nassar Mansour, himself a highly respected calligrapher, here traces the development of muhaqqaq as a script. From his analysis of medieval manuscripts he has created a new 'copybook', a traditional teaching aid used by calligraphy students. No such copybook for writing muhaqqaq has ever survived from the medieval era or the early modern period. Mansour also presents his own work in muhaqqaq, illustrating the stages of development of each piece and thus providing an insight into the calligrapher's art. This book is an invaluable and beautifully executed reference work on the art of Islamic calligraphy. Muhaqqaq is a venerable and striking script of enormous historical interest which yet offers contemporary possibilities, whether on paper for artistic pieces or on stone as a form of architectural expression. This book will attract students of Islamic calligraphy, art historians and practitioners alike, as well as collectors and aesthetes. --Book Jacket.
