I am somewhat of a book junkie and I purchase and read anything I can get my hands on about calligraphy and/or small business. My favorite thing about THIS book isn't the writing, exactly but how the author showcases pages and pages of different capital letter variations. When I was developing my style, capital letters took a lot of practice for me. I went back and forth with many different letter forms before creating the alphabet that I use most often today.
In this book, Molly Suber Thorpe has like twenty different ways to write each letter! That alone is worth the price of admission. I recommend this book to my classes almost every single time as a way to learn and practice different styles of Modern Calligraphy.
