B2225. Enrich Your Calligraphy / Wilson
Enrich Your Calligraphy
By Diana Hardy Wilson. 1996. 175pp. 7.75"x11.25". Hardcover.

This is not a book about letterforms but about how to go about creating calligraphic pieces. Further, unlike many recent calligraphy books, this book is generous with the text rather than being a printed slide show with captions. Wilson explains how to be a maker of calligraphic work with both practical and philosophical discussions about design, creativity, and the actual production.
