Once you have learned your letters, it is time to enliven and embellish your letters and words with loops, swoops, turns, and extensions - in short, flourishing. This guide and trace-and-copy workbook takes you through flourishing rules, various components of flourishes, how to enter and exit letters, how to compose a flourished layout, and how to evaluate your work. Then, with trace-and-copy pages, you learn a variety of flourishes for each letter, from A-Z, both capital and small letters. The book is best with brush markers, and for beginners the author recommends the Tombow Hard Fudenosuke brush pen. (If you use a pointed metal nib, the workbook pages are good with Walnut Crystals and McCaffery's Penman ink, but Higgins Eternal feathers.)

I Love This Book!

I have it on hand when ever I'm writing something calligraphically be it simple or complex. This is beautiful book and very easy to follow. Its for pointed pen. If you struggle with flourishes this is the book you've been waiting for. I wouldn't call this book basic but I don't have much else to compare it to. I'm not sure there is anything available mass market that is quite like it.
