I purchased this book hoping for instruction specific to the left-handed practice of calligraphy. Wow, what a disappointment. There is very little information specific to left-handed calligraphy and some of the illustrations are perplexing, to say the least, as they show pen nibs in an orientation only possible if the pen is held in the right hand. One shows an entire left hand in an orientation that is anatomically impossible. Unfortunately, confuses what the author is trying to say about pen position in relationship to the line of writing. Not worth even the low cost of the book. Buy yourself some left-handed nibs and experiment with the angle of your paper and your hand position. That sums up the useful information in this book.

I purchased this along with the Modern Contemporary Calligraphy Beginner Kit. I am so glad that I purchased the Leftie book. Even if I wasn't left handed this book explained so much more than the Kit and it's few pages of instruction. It took only about an hour or so to read the Leftie book and really made a lot of sense out of everything that goes into making these beautiful letters. I have a background in desktop publishing so many of the terms and ideas were very familiar to me and made the reading easy. Another thing is that this book identified what sort of nib a left handed person needs (oblique) whereas the other book said a leftie really doesn't need a different a different nib. Opinions differ here. I've not started practicing yet with the right-handed nibs I have so I can't yet comment. But I've found a slew of Speedball oblique nibs at www.paperinkarts.com. (Amazon doesn't sell them.) The right vs. left comes down to this: a rightie pulls her pen across the page, so a sharp-tipped nib is okay. But a leftie pushes her nib across the page making it likely that she will rip the page with a sharp-tipped nib depending on how much pressure she applies. And there are other considerations also, like being able to see where the ascending and descending parts of an "o" or "a" will meet up, for example. Therefore, if you order the Modern Contemporary Calligraphy Beginner Kit, too, which comes with some great practice pages and sample projects, know that you will not get the oblique nib that a leftie might need. You need to order that separately.

Our daughter is left handed and was going through a calligraphy section in art class. She was disappointed that her letters never came out right. Even though the teacher assured me that the techniques are the same for both right and left handed writers, I got this book for her and she was able to see how to do things correctly. It got to the point where she would nod politely at the instructions, look in her book and do it perfectly.

I didn't buy this book to become an impressive calligrapher. I bought the book because I was seeking help in my penmanship with only a casual interest in calligraphy and, as a lefty, this book looked promising. I was not disappointed. A major strength of the book is that it doesn't patronize us lefties, and could easily be modified for right-handed writers. The author doesn't explain how to cope as a lefty, but presents the full topic as though all writers were left-handed. This focused approach makes the book invaluable to the left-handed writer who wants a meaningful book on calligraphy, and not just a supplement to a book for right-handed writers. The book also presents history of calligraphy and other supportive background information. Overall, a nice reference and the size, at 64 pages, is perfect for my needs. A person seeking professional status may need much much more, but this is a great introductory and basic text.

It's a little out of date as the pens suggested aren't made anymore. Spends more time on the different types of alphabets rather being entirely devoted to left handed calligraphy. But it was helpful and not very expensive.

Author spends far too much time giving the background of various alphabets as opposed to actually instructing left-handed calligraphy methods. A bit disappointed in that. But book does give pointers and recommendations for the correct supplies to successfully write calligraphy, and for that I'm grateful. Also, it came on time and was as described.

This book is not easy to follow. I am attempting to teach my left-handed granddaughter calligraphy as a right-handed person. Not much help.
I bought this book to help me learn to be a little neater when writing and it has helped. There aren't any great answers to how to become a great calligraphy writer, but the book did have practical information you can use. Practicing on the papers I got and reading the information in the book has helped me become a neater writer so the book did what I wanted it to do.
