Free Preview: The Art of Calligraphy: Blackletter Script

Introduction and Course Overview


In this calligraphy course, we’ll be learning the Blackletter Script, often seen as the most beautiful and difficult calligraphic font (although we're going to prove that the latter isn’t true). If you’ve never tried calligraphy before or didn’t even know they still sold ink in jars, don’t panic. Megan Eckman will teach you calligraphy using a no-frills approach. You’ll start the course by learning the basic strokes that make up every letter in the Blackletter Script alphabets. Once you’ve practiced every letter, you’ll move on to making a fun, coffee-inspired poster. You’ll finish the course with a valuable new skill and a great sense of pride because you will have mastered what appears to be the most difficult calligraphic font there is.
