Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Inkspired explores ways to refine your existing handwriting into beautiful, personalized calligraphy for dozens of unique applications.


This stylish workbook contains clear instruction, encouraging advice, and 40 practice pages for the beginner calligrapher, plus plenty of white space throughout to continue practicing. Learn to embrace mistakes and play around with new ideas: practice not just with pen and paper, but on craft paper with a variety ofvegetables (such as a carrot, asparagus, or pepper) dipped in ink; or swap ink for bleach or fragrant espresso.


Discover ways to implement your art on a variety of surfaces (such as leaves, fruit, gift wrap, mirrors, and balloons), as well as ideas for special occasions such as weddings, Valentine's Day, birthdays, Easter, Halloween, Christmas, and New Year's Eve.


Reconnect with handwriting and discover the calming, creative joy of calligraphy for every occasion.
