I’m not known for my good penmanship, but I would like to be able to make these hand lettered pieces that have become really popular in the past few years.
I know that calligraphy can be a learned artform, but all I see in forms of learning are these ‘kits’ at Barnes & Noble and other bookstores that I don’t really trust to teach me anything.
Are there resources out there for me? Or is it pretty much a “practice makes perfect” type of learning where it comes to me only by (literal) wrote memory?
(Also, I know that anything takes practice to learn, that’s not my question, lol. I’m not looking for “quick and easy” resources, but actual books/sites that people who do professional calligraphy or the like would use or have used when they were learning.)
I found a few websites don’t know if you would have already found them but;
Also found some books;
http://www.studioarts.net/calligraphy/ (seems a little dated)
Personally I feel this to be a lost art form (or at least it is becoming one). But I still find it to very impressive to see what these people can do because I have awful penmanship.
