B2769. Foundations of Calligraphy / Waters
By Sheila Waters. 2006. 126pp. 9"x11.25". Concealed spiral binding. Now in its third printing. Hardcover.

In the 110 pages of exemplar alphabets, instruction, and hints, Sheila shares with you the knowledge she has gathered over her decades of study and practice. She provides insightful analysis of forms and constructions and helps you learn and work toward mastery of the alphabets. The presentation is honed by her vast experience teaching calligraphers how to advance their skills and art. Sheila Waters is not only a master scribe, but a master teacher. She has made both her life's work.

Chapters include Basics & Beyond, Analysis & Practice, Design & Layout, Conception to Completion, and Applying Design Principles. Foundational, Blackletter, Gothic Cursives, Uncial & Half Uncial, Carolingian, Italic, and Italic Variations are covered with thorough instruction for each. Foundational and Italic receive particular attention.
