My Review

I really looked forward to getting this in the mail! When I was in my preteens, I dabbled in Calligraphy and loved it. But I remember thinking about that little booklet that came with my Calligraphy starter kit. I wanted something well put together, straight forward, and clean. This book is all that! It's perfect for anyone who wants to start practicing Calligraphy. Especially for beginners or those like myself who are so out of practice and need that jumpstart. Moreover, it gives you great tips for writing on envelopes and other material to get you started writing elegantly in no time! It would also make a great gift for friends! Buy this book and a good Calligraphy pen and they are set!

I give this book a 5 out of 5!

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for this honest and unbiased review as part Blogging for Books blogging program.
