A practical introduction to the art of writing. 

Everything you need to know to best approach calligraphy, choose the right tools and the best supports, understand the structure of the letter and practice the first strokes. The diversity of western calligraphy. Historical alphabets, from ancient to modern times, are presented in detail to guide the calligrapher in learning how to trace. A historical perspective enables the natural evolution of writing to be understood and a culture of lettering to be developed. The richness of contemporary creations. While exploring recent practices that have revisited the art of calligraphy, this book gives an account of the artistic diversity of writing, providing new alphabets adapted to the evolution of tools and media. The refinement of decoration. As an integral part of calligraphy, decoration is approached in its historical dimension and is based on techniques derived from the work of the letter (lettering, Celtic interlacing, scrolls and pen strokes). It constitutes an inexhaustible source of inspiration for composing shapes and playing with styles and colours in calligraphic creations (postal art, light graph, gestures...).
