NEW Calligraphy Books are HERE!

It's been a long time coming, but the new calligraphy workbooks are finally here and we're SO excited! We've taken everything you loved about our first workbook along with everything you've asked for or suggested to create our new and improved practice guide. Pre-orders are happening now {just in time for the holidays!} and we'll be shipping these lovelies the week after Thanksgiving - but don't worry, we won't make you wait 'till then to see the amazing things our new workbook has to offer! Just keep scrolling and prepare yourself for some serious excitement ... 

No. 1 - Well, hello pretty new cover! Our brand new cover features fun new artwork designed right here in the Design Roots studio - but wait, that's not all! Our new workbook cover is printed on a silky sweet soft touch material that you won't be able to keep your hands off of {we know we can't!}

No. 2 - So the cover is great and fantastic and silky soft, but let's get down to the nitty gritty - the new and improved alphabet! As you open the front cover you'll notice a fully laid out alphabet {ampersand included!} that now includes arrow guides for easier learning and practicing. Now anyone, and we mean anyone, can use our workbook to learn calligraphy! 

No. 3 - You know that new alphabet we just told you all about? Well flip out the flap and you'll find sheet upon sheet of grid paper, the most exciting new feature of our workbook. When you get the book for yourself and check it out in person {hint hint} you'll notice that the grid sheets are a bit blue, and that's because we've incorporated non-repro technology that will allow you to copy your beautiful works of handwritten art without the grid showing up in the background. We know, right? The paper is our favorite - non-bleed, smooth, translucent, and perfect for practicing {and finalizing} your calligraphic creations! 

No. 4 - Oh, did you say you'd rather trace the alphabet? You got it! That special fold out flap you just had to the right has the alphabet printed on both sides, so you can just fold the flap back over and under your grid paper to trace the strokes instead! We know... this is one of our favorite parts too! 

Y'all, we are so excited about this new book that we are giving away ONE book and ONE new tuxedo kit {the workbook, black AND white ink, an oblique pen and nib}! Comment with the letter you just can't wait to try writing below or on our Instagram feed for a chance to win - or comment on both for two entries. And as we like to say here at Design Roots, Happy Practicing!
