Introduction to Modern Flow Calligraphy ($39) is a fantastic introduction to modern pointed pen calligraphy which features varying line weights, elegant loops and flourishes. Caitlin Dundon offers a teaching style in Modern Flow Calligraphy that uses the smooth flow of cursive you learned as a child, rather than the complete lifting of pen off paper for different strokes like Copperplate teaches. This style of calligraphy is easier for beginners and allows for softer more relaxed hand, shoulder and elbow movement. There is less stress on the body and the brain as this technique allows for more creative lettering styles. Students do not have to imitate or copy exactly each stroke to perfection so there is less stress and more creativity and enjoyment of the process.
