  • Challenges and makes you rethink everything 5

    Posted by Don on Aug 26th 2020

    More than any other calligraphy book I have read, Jonas' book requires commitment and a little faith. She takes the reader through a number of styles and scripts, using a variety of mediums. The early scripts have little real-world application and won't impress your friends or look good on envelopes. The later scripts definitely have a place in one's repertoire, but may not be the styles one implements most frequently. The point, though, is not to simply learn the styles, but to rethink, re-experience, and re-imagine your relationship to your pen, and your pen to your medium and to free your hand from rote copying. The instructions are extremely detailed, with big pictures and lots of exercises. Some of these I learned a tremendous amount from, and some were a little lost on me. This is to be expected, as it is a book that lets you, to some extent, take your own journey. This was one of the best investments I have made in my practice.
