Classic Calligraphy for Beginners
It's finally here! A classic calligraphy book filled with my recommended supplies, instruction, and creative projects to inspire you forward. In this book, I will be introducing two of my favorite pointed pen scripts - Copperplate and Spencerian. You will also learn how use a brush for calligraphy and use any writing tool to emulate the scripts through faux calligraphy. Then, the latter part of the book will contain step by step instruction & photos to guide you through 25+ handwritten projects that you can create for your events, home, or personal use.
This book has been a true labor of love and I cannot be more excited for you to have it in your hands! My journey in calligraphy has been so unexpected yet filled with much joy.

"What is the difference between this book and your practice pads?"
I'm answering this question in a blog post to help differentiate between my book, practice pads, and online courses. Because of page limitations and a desire to include tangible creative projects for you to incorporate calligraphy, the book will be an introduction to starting calligraphy vs. my practice pads and online courses, which will be more of a focused, in-depth study into the individual scripts.Read More
A thorough intro to calligraphy and a pleasant read!
"The author of this book, Younghae, was my first pointed pen calligraphy instructor online. I especially gravitate towards her slender and elegant style of copperplate calligraphy. She walks you through the most basic methods of copperplate calligraphy in the book and well as the same for Spencerian style. I have yet to learn Spencerian, which is why I’m so glad she included both! You will enjoy the simplicity yet deeply knowledgeable methods and skills Younghae has accumulated throughout the years and she shares everything she knows. This book will be a game changer if you are a beginner in calligraphy. But even for me who is no longer a beginner, I still value her descriptions and still find this book to be extremely helpful and resourceful!"
Destined to be a classic book on calligraphy! Beautiful with high quality and thorough instruction.
