Review "Sally Sanders simplifies the basic form of lettering styles and demystifies the art of calligraphy through simple, colorful, step-by-step instructions from introducing each style to applying them to a finished project. This book is great for kids and it is an excellent start-up for adults, too!"--Angela Vangalis, founder of Texas Lettering Arts Council and co-editor/designer of the 24th Edition of the Speedball Textbook "Having begun my own calligraphy career using messy inks and difficult metal pens that took a long time to master, Sally Sanders' approach puts more familiar tools in the hands of children and guides them through easy-to-learn ways to take their handwriting to an expressive level. With many school systems eliminating art and handwriting programs in favor of computers, Modern Calligraphy for Kids will bring the joy and beauty of making things by hand back into a child's life. Beginning with thorough supply lists that describe in detail the kinds of tools available, Sally demonstrates a variety of lettering styles in this book, keeping them fun while showing how to take it to an elegant and expressive craft."--Annie Cicale, instructor and author of The Art & Craft of Hand Lettering "A book to encourage and stimulate interest in modern calligraphy for children of all ages. The pages are set out clearly in a gentle sequence covering the history of writing and the practical steps to achieve a contemporary calligraphic hand. Well written and so beautifully illustrated throughout, this book will be a constant companion and guide for those interested in our alphabetical heritage."--Peter Thornton, instructor and freelance calligrapher "What a great resource for students and art teachers alike! Professional calligrapher Sally Sanders makes the process accessible and enjoyable while maintaining the quality and character of the art form. I really appreciate the specific recommendations of markers and papers that make the process accessible for beginners."--Alan Doe, art teacher at Western Reserve Academy
