I am glad I received this book for free in exchange for a review, because I do not feel that it was really worth buying. I have always been interested in calligraphy, because I have very poor handwriting. I have several pen pals, who get sloppily written letters, so when this book came available for review, I was very excited to get it. The book does not lay flat when you are practicing your handwriting, which is unfortunate, so you have to find something to hold it open to the page that you are on. The instructions are easy to follow, but there are not many photos of the writing. It would have been better to include more visuals, since calligraphy is so beautiful.
