    Many customers have asked us for an italic handwriting book for an older child or for themselves. By the same publisher as the Italic Handwriting series sold above, this is a one-book, self-teaching course for use by middle schoolers through adults. The 96-page workbook proceeds step-by-step and includes tips and techniques adjacent to the examples to be copied. It actually compresses the full instruction in italic books A-G, beginning with basic italic, learning joins, and progressing to cursive italic. The book finishes up with a special section on calligraphy, introducing the nibbed fountain pen and artistic lettering.

       You’re never too old, or young, to begin learning to write calligraphy, and this book is a great step-by-step product to get you started. You can use alongside the Getty-Dubay Handwriting series for K-8 (beginning with 2nd grade) or as a stand-alone program to learn the art of calligraphy. This 64-page book is the collaboration of Inga Dubay and a group of Portland State teachers over the course of 3 years and includes instruction for writing with edged pens, italic calligraphy, and the history of the art form. 13 introductory pages explain what you will be doing in the remaining pages. There are 20 worksheets for use with a 3.5 mm nib and 9 worksheets for use with 2mm nib. 17 historical charts show the progression of letter formation since the Roman era. Ruled line pages and blank historical charts are found in the back and are the only pages that may be copied. Pages follow a progression; students practice strokes, lowercase letter families, formal capital letters, then copy Hindu-Arabic numerals, poems, quotes, Greek & Latin root words, and 50 most used English words. Use what you have learned to make beautiful cards & letters to give as thoughtful gifts.

      There are some great resources at the author’s website, handwritingsuccess.com. Helpful videos will take you through the worksheets in the book and a worksheet generator lets you make your own practice worksheets in both the 3.5mm and 2mm nib sizes.  

      The author asks that you, “Slow down, enjoy the process of calligraphy, and fall in love with letters along the way!” ~ Donna

    We use letters all the time, but how often do we take advantage of making them lively and full of character? More of a book of art and craft projects based around letters than a calligraphy “how-to” guide, this book contains loads of projects and ideas to make letters fun, fancy, messy, and zesty! Broaden your mind with projects that involve potato stamps, watercolor, gel pens, cardboard, pom-poms, and much more! Divided into sections from thirteen lettering artists, this book contains 55 projects with a range of materials, mediums, and uses. Each project has step-by-step instructions with room for the individual letterer’s own touches. Make an initialed polka-dot placard. Scrawl out a message where all your letters come to life with colorful faces. Make a valentine with a cat wrapped in string, or a candy store sign with bold letters. After you go through this book, you’ll never look at letters the same way again. Instead, you’ll be thinking up your own projects to make one-of-a-kind words, phrases, invitations, signs, gift tags, and more! - Janine
