What is modern calligraphy?

When we think of calligraphy, we may first think of an antiquated skill that’s only real modern-day use has been superseded by the introduction of 1000’s of fonts which can be easily printed. Modern calligraphy is all about carving out time to switch off and truly relax with the benefit of enjoying watching your skills grow enabling you to create beautiful projects to gift and to keep.

Before you say “But my handwriting is terrible”, calligraphy is open to all, you don’t need artistic skills to follow the more simple and relaxed rules of modern hand-lettering. With our new magazine, you’ll learn everything you need to develop this beautiful art and enjoy using modern calligraphy to achieve a sense of wellbeing and mindfulness.

Here’s our commissioning Editor Lou Collins with some brush lettering tips

    I’m looking forward to the first magazine. I had attended a few classes in traditional regular (not copperplate) calligraphy and really enjoyed how calming it was as you don’t think of anything other than the pen strokes you are making. I changed jobs and increased my working hours so was unable to attend any more classes, so this new magazine seems perfect for me.

  9. Fiona

    July 11, 2019 at 10:47

    Your first magazine looks great! I love how this giveaway also gives to everyone with the videos and tips. I really want to grow my skills and passion for writing, I also like seeing how different stationery items work as I’ve spent so much on things that are not right for me. This website and Instagram page give me lots of inspiration 🙂

    Yeah!!!!! It’s launch day no need for me to rush out because l have taken the 3 issues for £6 offer and my copy of the first issue arrived several days ago. I’m on my summer break at the moment so I’ve eased into today by reading the Home is where the heart is artical I liked the way Carla Bagshaw has expended the concept of hand lettering with quilling work.

  276. Marianne

    July 18, 2019 at 12:53

    Fun! I’ve taking a calligraphy class many years ago, but did not really know what to do with it. I like the idea that brush lettering can be applied in my crafting and more.

  293. Shirley Goddard

    July 21, 2019 at 6:14

    Well! After a week of sinking further into depression, I took myself off to Sainsbury’s to stare at magazines I couldn’t afford or justify buying. I saw Simply Lettering and it took me back to my childhood – buying a new pen and notebook on a Saturday with pocket money, spending all evening watching Starsky & Hutch writing and designing new styles. I didn’t care about the cost and it went to the checkout. But the best was yet to come – it wouldn’t scan the barcode despite everyone’s effort and the kind soul checkout lady let me have it for free! I have played with the free pens, bought some lovely smooth paper and I am once again, a happy 9 year-old. Am subscribing right now!

  294. Lynsey Harte

    July 21, 2019 at 6:55
