Eleanor Winters has been an active participant in the international calligraphy movement for more than three decades. A commercial as well as fine-art calligrapher, she is the author of five calligraphy books: Calligraphy in Ten Easy Lessons (Dover Publications, 1984), Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy (Dover, 1989), Calligraphy for Kids (Sterling Publishing, 2004), 1-2-3 Calligraphy (Sterling Publishing, 2006). and Italic and Copperplate Calligraphy (Dover, 2011).

Kids everywhere will be grabbing their calligraphy pens, because this follow-up to the wildly successful "Calligraphy for Kids" (1-4027-0664-2) offers them even more artful fun. Inside they'll find new alphabets - and new ways to render the alphabets they already know - as well as fresh techniques and projects.

Attractive pages, filled with brightly colored examples, get kids started with simple zigzags, and then move on to small and large italics, gothic lettering, uncial, and Roman calligraphy. Children will especially enjoy using their new skills to write down favorite poems, fashion border designs, and create greeting cards and invitations.

I have decided to take up calligraphy. I am an artist with, what I think, is terrible penmanship. I often create things with wording and I struggle to make it look right, so I have my sister do the lettering. Not anymore! In just 1 week of practicing the alphabet in skeleton form (Without the thick and thins) with a carpenter's pencil (wide lead like a wide nibbled pen) and this book, and I'm well on my way!

This book is perfect for me, I thought if this book can teach a child, it can teach me as well! On the other hand, I thought that if this can't teach me, nothing will! lol

The key to this, I've found, is repetition. Start with a roundhand lowercase (or miniscule) alphabet and write your abc's literally until you cannot stand to write another strange looking "g" (the roundhand lowercase "g" is the strangest way I've ever written a "g" before since the top circle doesnt fill up the entire x height, only about 2/3 plus the rest of the letter is made with a funky motion. It feels unnatural to me.) Even so, now I can make them with ease. After this is when I picked up this book. My normal handwriting has improved immensely, I find myself using the tips and tricks from this book without even thinking about. It's becoming second nature. Again, repetition is key! The practice pages in the back are perfect! I scanned them in and printed off a ton of copies. Lots of pictures, stroke numbers and detailed tips to help you or a child learn the beautiful art of calligraphy!

One thing I didn't see in the book was the tip to use the carpenter's pencil at first. You get the hang of keeping it flat at all times with the wide lead, just like a wide nibbed pen. I can see where kids may have an easier time with that instead of jumping straight to a marker or fountain pen.

(If I may also recommend a pen, the Pilot Parallel is amazing! So simple to use, to load and write with. The ink flows perfectly, it is unlike any other calligraphy or broad nibbled pen I've ever used and they're under $8 here on Amazon. I also recommend getting the 20 dollar 4 pack with differing sizes. 1.5, 2.4, 3.8 and 6.0)

Speedball's Elegant Writers are great chisel tip markers to practice with also, and Amazon sells a 4 pk for 4 dollars as an add on item!

**I included a photo of the funky roundhand script letter "g" just in case anyone wondered what I was talking about, but also to show the difference my practice has made. The "weird" g's looked terrible when I started a week ago.

I'm 65 years old, so in no way am I a kid, but I never learned calligraphy, so I thought I'd start from the beginning. It is a good book for a beginner, no matter what your age is. One of the main reasons I gave this 5 stars is that the book has lined pages in the back that you can copy for practicing all the types of calligraphy they teach. Lined pages are a MUST while learning, if not for writing as a pro. I would recommend this to any beginner who wants to learn calligraphy.

I gave this book to my 14 year old grandson for his birthday, among other books. It has some good examples of different styles of calligraphy for him to practice. I'm a retired art teacher and like it better than the books we used in class. Quick delivery. A+++

This is a great book! The directions are simple enough to follow and it makes a great starting place. Even though it says it is for kids, I think this could be a helpful resource for anyone just starting out learning calligraphy. My daughter is going to love this!

I'm using this book with a group of teens and the instruction is excellent! There are several types of calligraphy covered, from very traditional to gothic to roman typeset style. Instructions include pen placement and strokes, upper case, lower case and spacing of letters. There are chapters on writing invitations and other applications for calligraphy. The book is straight forward enough for a child, but it's not childish. An excellent resource for learning and practicing calligraphy.

I am a calligrapher, and am using this book to teach my daughter. This book is clear, has excellent instructional points, a wide variety of alphabets to learn, and practice pages that can be copied and used. Very pleased with this book.

This is a nice book. We bought it for our son's birthday along with a quill. He won't open it until this weekend, but I have already flipped through the book. I think he will pick this up quickly. It has a variety of styles which I hope will be fun for him to play with. Through school he has learned print, D'Nealian, and cursive. He has lovely handwriting so it made sense when he asked for the quill for his birthday.
This book has a very thorough knowledge of calligraphy and makes it very easy for children to understand. There are plenty of pictures for the visual learner. This a great thing for kids to learn and nice extra thing to add to handmade gifts and cards. I have shared this with the younger children in my family.
