  • Purchased for a gift for grand daughter who wanted to learn calligraphy.
    Granddaughter says she has enjoyed learning about the history involved even more than learning the calligraphy.
    She is delighted and I am thankful for the quality!

  • I enjoyed this book. Gave me the information that I needed.

  • I am still reading this book, So far it is interesting in how it describes the various formats and time frames calligraphy was used.
    I could recommend this as an additional reference to calligraphy, but not a sole reference.

  • This book introduces a few medieval "hands" and is pretty simplistic.
    Good for a child who just saw a movie about the period or is studying it in school.

    A serious student of the subject needs to spend the extra money and go for the Medieval Calligraphy: Its History and Technique

    That one can get pretty dry just as reading material, but the "how-to" pages are very comprehensive and it offers a lot more hands and variations plus the sources for them.

  • This is a book I wished had been around when I was a kid. A fun, step-by-step book for older kids showing how calligraphy developed during the Middle Ages. With each script, he introduces you to a person living during that time period, and a little history about what was going on in the world. All of the scripts have very clear pictures and instructions, plus photos of real medieval pages so you can see how the script looked. I'm an adult, but I really enjoyed this book and learned a lot.

  • This is a good book to start off with when learning calligraphy. It shows you many script forms from different regions and is an excellent purchase.

  • More of a history the the calligraphy than a how to.

  • Having read Drogin's Medieval Calligraphy years before, I picked this book up with the wish of sharing calligraphy with my boys and the other kids in my life. While I still find Medieval Calligraphy to be the better book, this one was a great place for my boys to start. They needed a teacher, but, as in most art, calligraphy is really best learned through apprenticeship, so that's not a knock on the book. The things I like best about it as someone looking to share with kids is that it covers the basics without so much detail that it bores but enough detail to spark curiosity for further research and a recognition that there was a culture and a context behind the practice. The pictures of the techniques are big enough that students can see what's going on and understand how to replicate it, and they are interspersed with pictures from original manuscripts--as opposed to many quick instruction books that show technique for the hands only--so that it gives the feeling of continuity. It was a good place to start.
