This little book from Charles Pearce is the perfect starting point for calligraphy and will allow readers to gain a serious insight into the craft.

“The qualities which should be aimed towards in calligraphy are those of rhythm, spontaneity, sharpness, and clarity. Rhythm will come as spacing begins to get more even; spontaneity is the product of complete familiarity with the style being used; sharpness, good definition be tween thick and thin strokes, will occur as one becomes better acquainted with the tools; and clarity is the case with which a piece can be read.” –– Charles Pearce, Introduction.
