The Crafthood Top Picks of Modern Calligraphy and Lettering Books

July 12, 2018



 As complete learning enthusiasts, we are always on the look out for calligraphy books that will develop and grow our love for this practice.  Our style of calligraphy is most definitely in the modern camp and as a result our picks reflect this.  


We have grown our library of resources over the last two years so narrowing down our top picks was tough but here it is.  These picks are simply in the order that we purchased then.


Update - July 2018 - two of our recent purchases have made an impact so we have updated our blog to reflect this.


Nib + Ink - The New Art of Modern Calligraphy

Chiara Perano



This was the first modern calligraphy book we purchased and is great as an entry level offering.  For those new to this, Chiara is the owner of Lamplighter London - if you are ever lacking in lettering inspo then their instagram page is pure lettering goodness!  


The book encourages you to 'just begin' and this is a great ethos as no matter how much reading around the subject you do there is no greater learning than that which comes from experience.
