This book begins with a short history of writing. Then covers the pen and nib and how to use them. He gives examples of the five fundamental hands. Covers rhythm and spacing, design and layout. This is a book that after your first reading will be on your bookshelf and referred to often. The most impressive thing about this book is that it was COMPLETELY HANDWRITTEN BY THE AUTHOR and reproduced for publishing. It is a must have for any calligrapher.
I like the fact that all of the fonts that I have studied are represented here. It contains just the right amount of information.
