Customer Reviews

We are in the age where the keyboard has become more popular than the pen and I found myself wanting to develop a more personal and stylish handwriting style. So I checked out a few calligraphy books online and was specifically attracted to Chiara Perano’s “Nib and Ink” book on modern calligraphy. The authors synopsis implied the book would be straight forward and easy to follow. So I got the book and I’m delighted with it. You can start practising pretty much straight away. Chiara’s communication skills throughout the book are reassuring and her tips and guidance support you in a very enjoyable experience. The FAQ's and troubleshooting section are also very helpful. So I’m getting a lot of pleasure from my sessions with the book where I indulge on the simple pleasure of adding creativity to my handwriting. I would recommend that this is the book to buy for yourself, or as a gift, to help engage and create with the artistry and flair of modern calligraphy.
