Without needing any prior knowledge or experience the reader is shown the range of tools and materials which can be used to produce eye-catching writing.

Techniques of writing with colour and gilding are also explained, and it is suitable for both adults and children. Patricia Lovett is a teacher, author and freelance calligrapher, who has co-written "Creating Letter Forms".
