Learn World Calligraphy
There's a new book by world-renowned calligrapher Margaret Shepherd, Learn World Calligraphy. And an exhibition of art taken from the book, entitled "The World of Writing," is on display at the First Church in Boston, 66 Marlborough St., Boston, now through December 10. Learn World Calligraphy, introduced in September, is an opportunity to discover African, Arabic, Chinese, Greek, Hebrew and many more types of calligraphy. It includes 192 lushly illustrated pages with examples of historical and modern calligraphic designs with practical instruction. It's priced at $24.99, available at art and bookstores.
