The Calligrapher's Bible: 100 Complete Alphabets and How to Draw Them by David Harris. 2003. 256pp. 6.3"x8.2". Hardcover, hidden spiral.

A brief section on tools, materials and techniques is followed by an amazing array of alphabets: medieval and modern, formal and informal. Each has an exemplar alphabet with ductus, including pen angle changes within strokes for certain alphabets. The opposite page has instructions on the basic structures of the letters for the hand. Includes broad edge, pointed pen, and brush alphabets. The small size & spiral format makes it easy to use. (Note: The instructional photos for the pointed pen script alphabets do not follow the standard practice in the USA).
