ISSUU and free calligraphy books!
« on: January 02, 2014, 12:00:14 PM »
I just posted about the fabulous Logo, Font, & Lettering Bible in the Tutorial section. I thought I would share this link in case you don't know about it. I still can't figure out why but there are some great calligraphy books available for free viewing on ISSUU. Check them out!

Logo, Font, & Lettering Bible: http://issuu.com/letteringtime/docs/logo_font___lettering_bible_

The Art of Calligraphy: http://issuu.com/letteringtime/docs/the_art_of_calligraphy

The Creative Calligraphy Sourcebook: http://issuu.com/letteringtime/docs/calligraphy

Ames Guide to Self Instruction: http://issuu.com/letteringtime/docs/ames_guide_to_self-instruction

Sykes Manual of Penmanship: http://issuu.com/iamjamaica/docs/sykes

The Art of the Pen: http://issuu.com/glassmann/docs/the_art_of_the_pen_-_calligraphy

There are many, many more - calligraphy books, calligrapher's samples, guild newsletters... Just search "calligraphy."

ENJOY!
