The Creative Calligraphy Sourcebook: Choose from 50 Imaginative Projects and 28 Alphabets to…

Do you make your own greeting cards and wish you could write beautifully instead of depending on rubber stamps for what you want to say? Would you like to hand letter a gorgeous sign, perhaps a poem and frame it but your third grade teacher was right when she said you had poor handwriting? Then this book is for you.

Mr Waddington carefully teaches many beautiful styles of calligraphy, the Caroline manuscript which most people are familiar with as well as my favorite, the italics, with quite a few other styles thrown in for good measure. You will learn the process step by step, from the materials you will need to the technique to keep from smearing the ink.

Norman Rockwell: A Sixty Year Retrospective

For seven decades Norman Rockwell captured the essence of the American spirit, creating art for magazines (more than 300 Saturday Evening Post covers), children’s books, calendars, and advertisements, heartwarming and poignant images that touch us still. Norman Rockwell traces the evolution of the artist and his craft through his paintings, sketches, and photographs of him at home. And, of course, there is the artwork itself; the diverse array of full-color reproductions here represent Americans at work, at play, at home, and fighting for the Four Freedoms during World War II.
