A complete guide to italic calligraphy.

Handwritten by the authors from cover to cover, Italic Letters: Calligraphy & Handwriting by Inga Dubay and Barbara Getty is the most comprehensive "how-to" workbook that exists on learning italic -- 181 pages of step-by-step, beautifully illustrated instruction.

The book provides page after page of models to trace and letters to copy. Each letter is presented in both a monoline tool, for informal and rapid writing, and an edged tool, for an elegant, formal hand.

Dubay and Getty take you through basic italic, formal italic, chancery italic and cursive italic -- four classic styles that will earn you a lifetime of compliments in both your formal calligraphy and everyday handwriting. Once you have mastered the letterforms, the authors show you how to use your calligraphic skills to design and produce posters, invitations, letters, cards, booklets, and envelopes.

Italic Letters is for professional and amateur calligraphers, art teachers, and enthusiasts of book arts. It's also for students, business people, homemakers; virtually anyone who wants to learn calligraphy and improve handwriting legibility. In this age of computer-generated letters and forms, people admire more than ever the beauty and personal impact of handwritten communication.

"Inga Dubay and Barbara Getty are truly artists and have designed each page of Italic Letters with great clarity, balance, precision and beauty."

Dr. Betty Edwards, Author of Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain
