Writing the Creative Calligraphy Made Easy Book
I still can’t believe sometimes that I actually have written a book! And a book about calligraphy, for that matter! I still remember when I first picked up Molly Suber-Thorpe’s Modern Calligraphy book many moons ago when I was just starting out with calligraphy… who would’ve known that I would also at some point, write a book myself, in my own perspective as a wedding calligrapher? Truly, it has been such a blessing!
I still remember receiving the inquiry late in 2019 and we were entering the busiest season of the year (Q4) for our other biz, Lark & Ives, and so I found my plate super full and I had to ask for an extension to finish the book by the end of March!
But I also seem to enjoy making my plate super full, as I was also working on my calligraphy online course for beginners and launching it around this time. Gratefully, I had the full support from my family and my team to make this whole thing happen all at once.
It was such a joy planning all of the projects for the book, writing it, and then producing the photoshoots and styling each one of them so that we would be able to curate a beautiful book for you to read and learn from. This book not only shares the how-to write in calligraphy, but also talks all about the supplies, tools, and techniques for pointed-pen calligraphy as well as hand-lettering. Then, you also get 24 pages of writable worksheets, so you can practice directly on the book itself. Then of course, with your newfound calligraphy skills, we shared 30 stylish projects - from calligraphy cards, to hand-lettered gifts, to wedding menus and event calligraphy, to calligraphy gift wrapping ideas, and even handmade gifts with calligraphy. In this book I also listed all of my resources for my tools and supplies, and included a section on digitizing calligraphy as well.
