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

The updated reprint of this title is due in early March, 2019. The new version will include an additional 8 pages of gallery images in full color. We are accepting preorders for the new edition. If you place an order, your credit card will not be charged until shortly before the book ships. If you wish to use PayPal and delay your payment, you must email your order directly to info@johnnealbooks.com rather than ordering on the John Neal Books website.

Free Media Mail Shipping (USA only). Media Mail takes 2 to 3 weeks depending upon location.

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.

Free Media Mail Shipping to USA addresses. If you need the book sooner, there will be a $3 rush ship charge added to your order. Media Mail generally takes upwards of 2 weeks or more to be delivered.
