Fine Calligraphy Writing Paper, 50 sheets
Calligraphy of the Middle Ages and How to Do It, 91 pages
The author is a widely experienced calligrapher and one of the world’s leading authorities on the subject. His instructions on the four major hands of the era (early medieval Roman Rustic, early Uncial, Carolingian, and late medieval Gothic Textura) appear alongside a look at the life and times of a major figure from the heyday of the style. You’ll learn to write in the modes associated with Julius Caesar, King Arthur, Charlemagne, and Robin Hood, and read about the lives and careers of these historical figures. Well-suited to beginners.
Seriously, we love this set and think you will, too!
Recommended for ages 13 and up.
