This fully illustrated course book provides a comprehensive description of the history and practical techniques of Chinese calligraphy. No previous knowledge of the language is required to follow the text or complete the lessons. The work covers three major areas: descriptions of Chinese characters and their components, including stroke types, layout patterns, and indications of sound and meaning; basic brush techniques and the art of composing calligraphy pieces; and, the social, cultural, historical, and philosophical underpinnings of Chinese calligraphy - all of which are crucial to understanding and appreciating this art form. Students practice brush writing as they progress from tracing to copying to freehand writing.
