After pilfering through a library's entire selection of calligraphy books, I satisfied myself with this volume. It has extensive information regarding the tools, inks, and paper types for calligraphy, as well as detailed yet not exhaustive history of each script. The book is organized by the evolution of calligraphy alphabets from the Roman times. The stroke diagrams are present for each letter, making a very clear illustration of how each letter is formed. It gives tips and tricks about rotating the pen, the correct nibs to use for each alphabet, and displays historical variations of certain letters.

If you are interested in calligraphy, this is the first stop, and depending on how far you go, it may be the only one you need. I highly recommend this book to the modern calligrapher, or to the experienced scribe getting back into the swing of things.

An absolute must-have for anyone who wants to learn calligraphy. Simple, clear instructions. Bold, clear, and readable graphics. A great overview of many styles through the ages. Good info on using historically accurate writing tools. This book is not "dated" but it's not like some of the most modern calligraphy books which are stunning in their graphics, but leave much to be desired in terms of usability. The fonts are big enough to read, for one thing. Light gray seems to be a font color of choice in too many art instructional books nowadays. This one is uses black. Hooray.

I recently took a calligraphy class, and my teacher used this book to teach the class.

I immediately bought it, even though I already own a "few" calligraphy books, but this is one I reference more than any other.

I particularly appreciate the history lesson of written script, as well as all of the samples of historical works throughout the book. I don't have this info in any of my other books.

Harris utilizes multiple colors to illustrate the order of the strokes. This is very useful in tandem with numbers and arrows to show how to form each letter.

25 letterform styles plus "cadels" are taught in this book.

The GLOSSARY in this book is fantastic. Any term you come up against, you can find it in this glossary. Saves a LOT of time instead of searching each page for the definition!

There is a reference table of all the letterforms in the book, which makes it easy to decide which hand you may want to utilize at any given time.

And to top it all off, there's a comprehensive bibliography. So, if you want to research anything on your own you have a great guide!

I REALLY wish this book was spiral-bound so it would lay flat without a lot of bending and creasing, but it is NOT spiral-bound. It is a regular paperback. However, once you do your creasing and bending and folding, the pages eventually stay open and flat. I have resorted to clipping my pages open with a binder clip because the book is still new.

Mr. Harris, if you are reading this review, PLEASE PRINT THIS BOOK WITH A SPIRAL BINDING!!!! Otherwise, 2 thumbs up!

Informative and practical. Truly one of the greats. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in both the history and practical art of calligraphy. Don't go without this book. You don't have to do that to yourself.

I had the book once then lost it and re-acquired it! I would highly recommend this book for any stage calligrapher novice to master! It explains the now "lost" art of fine writing and scripting! It offers multiple fonts and explains the fonts historical development in great detail! I know I personally use it every time a calligraphic need arises! Sad Note though: this book is out of print and it should be given a new run on the book market!

I bought this book for a calligraphy class. It was a great reference for how to form letters as I was writing. There is information about how a particular hand came into existance for each section of the book. There is a complete alphabet shown for each hand with detailed lines and numbers for each of the strokes used to create a letter or figure as well as the type of pen used. I found it very easy to follow the lines and numbers as I was writing.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning calligraphy.
