Book Review: Simply Calligraphy by Judy Detrick

Recently I’ve found a new obsessionas if I didn’t have enough already!  It’s the beautiful art of hand lettering.  There are so many talented artists out there who make beautiful word art.  As a person who’s always loved pens, pencils and writing in general, I am intrigued.  When I saw the book Simply Calligraphy by Judy Detrick, I knew I had to have it!

The first thing I must say about this book is that it really is simple, but in the best way possible.  The cover features only the title on a solid turquoise-colored background, decorated with gold dots.  The simple theme is continued inside with neat, concise chapters and not a lot of frills.  The instructions are clear and easy to understand.  She gives advice about what kind of pen to buy to start out, which I found very helpful.  There is also info about how to use your new-found skills.  This book is a great jumping-off point for beginners.  I can’t wait to buy my pen and get started!

Happy reading (and writing!)


I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this review.  All opinions are my own.
