"When you get the rhythm it's really calming and feels like an ocean flowing."
Georgia, second grade
Calligraphy literally means "beautiful writing." Italic handwriting becomes italic calligraphy when written with an edged pen. The pen makes thick and thin lines depending on which direction it is moving.
It is easy to elevate your everyday writing to new artistic heights with italic.
Use calligraphy for cards, letters, posters, signs, labels — anywhere you want to make a creative statement that lasts. Controlling the angle of the edged pen as you write is the key, and Getty-Dubay Italic books are here to help.
