True to the fun and easy to follow Dummies way, this book starts at the very beginning of what to expect, how the book is set up, etc. It has a ton of different styles and how to work on them as well as tracing and practice worksheets. I bought this as a total beginner who wanted to find out more without spending a ton of cash on a full blown setup I have arthritic hairdressers hands and as a result my handwriting veers towards Very informative.

Great exercises for the beginner. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the quality of the paper. Anyone who does calligraphy knows that decent quality paper is KEY.

Otherwise the ink will feather and bleed or the pen will skip all along the paper. This stuff is scratchy and thin and soaks up the ink like a sponge, bleeds through to the other side terribly.

In summary, it has great content, but the paper is horrible for practicing on. As others have commented, the pulp paper the book is printed on does not lend itself to practice in the book. It's still an idea if i find it would be easier. I tried to get into other calligraphy books before finally settling on this one.

Typically, I would be so overwhelmed with the descriptions of pens and paper that I'd never actually get to the actual calligraphy-writing part.

This book is different, in that way the "for Dummies" books are known for. Author Jim Bennett starts with an introduction that includes reasons you think you can't do calligraphy and why you're wrong.

The first alphabet, Italic, is started with whatever pen you already have - no special nibs - just to get the feel of it. When you do get to the part that needs a special pen I choose a fountain pen for practice you feel more ready and confident to take the next step. I'm an unlikely calligrapher; even my handwriting isn't very neat.

But this book gives you the confidence to try this fascinating hobby. My shopping lists will never be the same! All in all this is a good beginning book.

Book information

It gives you enough concrete detail to get started and the recommendations of materials is solid. One starts with italic and there are a few detailed chapters to get on the right track. Later he gives brief, but helpful overviews on Black hand, Roman Foundation hand and Copperplate. My one beef is that he has a chapter on making money from your calligraphy which seems to be a page filler since to get enough skill to sell your work is going to take TIME and more study than this book.

The pages could have been better filled by expanding the history of writing and a bit more on hints for left handers. That bit aside, this is a good beginning book.
