Calligraphic Drawing - A How-To Guide and Gallery Exploring the Art of the FlourishNew
Book Basic Info
Masters of penmanship in the past advertised their copperplate skills by shaping their calligraphy and flourishes into elaborate pictorial designs. Now the art of the flourish is back. Calligraphic Drawing, written and illustrated by Schin Loong, is a hands-on guide to modern penmanship art, ranging from animals to people, to fantasy subjects and works that combine pictures with writing. The text and how-tos move from the simplest to the most challenging designs, with steps to take you through them and examples to inspire you..
