Fabulous!, March 28, 2005

Reviewer: Roger Burns (Washington, DC)

This is a fabulous introductory how-to book on Chinese calligraphy. The text and examples are large, the overall presentation of the material is clear and artful. Using this book is really easy.

The publisher's description says:

- Unique, systematic teaching method builds
from basic to advanced brushstrokes,
enabling you to create new words with each
brushstroke you learn

- Two fold-out cover flaps carry key
information to remind you of the anatomy
of each character as you progress

- Organized into a series of lessons and
projects which, as they are worked
through, build the reader's knowledge

- Includes beginner-level projects for
greeting cards, decorative ceramics, and
calligraphic artwork

Some 100 characters are covered. There are chapters on preparing the brushes, holding and loading the brush, wrist and elbow movements, pressing and lifting the brush, various brushstrokes, making a traditional writing book, a greeting card, the five golden rules of Chinese calligraphy, mounting a xuan paper artwork, and more. An appendix shows where Chinese calligraphy supplies can be obtained in the U.S and U.K., each listing has a website.

I happily give this book a full five stars.
