B3098. Calligraphy Alphabets for Beginners
B3098. Calligraphy Alphabets for Beginners:The Easy Way to Learn Lettering and Illumination Techniques by Mary Noble and Janet Mehigan. 2008. 256pp. 6.5"x8". Hardcover, concealed spiral

Presents instruction for Uncial, Foundational, Carolingian, Italic, Flourished Italic Copperplate, Gothic, Lombardic Capitals & numerals. Letters are presented in groups of similar forms with ductus and stop-action photos. Final section presents adding metallics and color to letters and pieces using some newer techniques.

REVIEW: These small format hidden spiral hardcover books are very popular. They don't take up area on your work space, and unlike paperbacks, they lie completely flat. No matter how you learn best, there is instruction for you. In this instructional manual each letter is presented individually with ductus, that is the combination of the letter with the little arrows and numbers indicating stroke sequence and direction. For those who like written instructions, this stroke order and direction is put into words as well. And finally there is a three panel strip of stop action photography showing the pen as it constructs the letter. That is not totally accurate. The pen is not actually stroking the letter as there is no ink in the pens used. However, this is actually a visual plus. Because the tip of the pen is not coated in black ink, you can see how more clearly how the the pen is placed on the paper. The letters of each hand are presented in a logical sequence. Generally letters with similar shapes are presented before moving on to other letters of similar shapes. At the bottom of each page, there are one line exercises to develop rhythm & help with spacing.

The hands (alphabets) are also presented in a logical sequence. Uncial is first. Stan Knight has proposed this as beginning alphabet over Italic. Unlike italic, there is no slant to the letters. There is only a majuscule (capital) alphabet to learn. So the student can gain working facility with a basic Uncial alphabet more quickly than italic. From Uncial its Foundational minuscule (lowercase), Roman majuscules, Carolingian, Formal Italic, Flourished Italic Copperplate, Gothic, Lombardic Capitals. They finish up with numbers and the ampersand. Instruction is given only for an upright set of numbers, exemplars are provided for Carolingian and Gothic. You are left on your own for Italic, Copperplate and Lombardic Capitals. If you already own instruction books by Mary Noble and Janet Mehigan that cover these hands, you may already have the material in this book.

There is a thirteen page final section on adding color and gold to calligraphic pieces. The authors present a lot in a few pages only allowing for concise instructions.
