    An easy-to-follow, teach-yourself guide to the art of Chinese calligraphy.

    Chinese script is one of the oldest forms of writing in existence. Its origins can be traced back to at least the second millennium BC and it is still in use over 3000 years later.

    Calligraphy, the creation of the written characters on paper with brush and ink, has traditionally been revered as one of the highest forms of Chinese art. Standard style or regular script (kaishu), with its distinct combination of legibility and elegance, has been fundamental to the calligrapher's art since the end of the Han dynasty in the 3rd century AD.

    This introductory workbook makes it possible for everyone to learn and enjoy the beauty of Chinese calligraphy. Building on his wide experience of running workshops and demonstrations for beginners, Qu Lei Lei has distilled the basics into this easy-to-follow guide.
