Praise for Modern Calligraphy"My final verdict on Modern Calligraphy? I. Love. It. If you want to be inspired, you've got to buy this book (it's the best $25 you'll spend on your calligraphy skills)."-- Lindsay Bugbee, The Postman's Knock"Molly Suber Thorpe deconstructs her modern style script for those brand new to calligraphy. Complete with exemplars, supply descriptions, instructions, and projects, it is a great starting point for those wanting to develop their own style of pointed pen writing. Creative, fresh, and lovely, this is a book you won't regret adding to your library!"-- Paper & Ink Arts"Teaches Molly's bold style of Copperplate that looks stylish and fresh, yet still refined. After an overview of supplies, you learn letters, words, then phrases with the clear instructions and exemplars. You then learn how to write with gouache and watercolor and how to digitize your calligraphy for printed items. The 20 projects provide inspiration for weddings, entertainment, and personal stationery. The final section is practical info for the working scribe, including strategies for large-batch projects and hints for left-handers."-- John Neal BooksellerPraise for The Calligrapher's Business Handbook"This new book should be a staple in the library of any calligrapher who wishes to pursue the art as a business. It is simply a wealth of useful and practical information. ... This is a volume that certainly should not be missed!"-- Paper & Ink Arts"If you're interested in making some income from your dip pen talent, I highly recommend The Calligrapher's Business Handbook! When you have a moment to read it, you'll want to dig in with a highlighter in hand. Molly's transparency about pricing and process is unrivaled, and I think that a lot of calligraphy businesses will get a running start because of her generosity in sharing information."-- Lindsay Bugbee, The Postman's KnockPraise for Molly's work"Molly has reinvented the art of calligraphy! There is nothing more exciting than receiving an envelope in the mail that was calligraphed by Molly. Her playful and charming script makes such a statement and her envelopes instantly become treasures (not trash)!"?Cheree Berry, Cheree Berry Paper and former Kate Spade designer"We love the bouncy, joyous, juicy quality of Molly's calligraphy. It's so lovely and fun and such a celebratory take on modern lettering."-- 100 Layer Cake"I'm met with an appeased feeling when I see calligraphy with personality; when a lettering style and a colour palette paint a picture in your head of what the person would be like as you look at it. When I first came across the work of Molly Suber Thorpe, I got that feeling. What captured my attention was how unique each project felt. Some sincerely whimsical, while others strikingly sophisticated. Molly works closely with individuals to ensure their desires are met, creating beautiful calligraphy for her clients."-- Julie Doan, Oh So Beautiful Paper"Molly Suber Thorpe is a marvel: her work is creative, fun, full of energy, and marked with personal style." ?Ashley Maddox, Where I'd Stay blog
