    The Calligraphy Post.

    A few days ago I bought a course "Introduction of the Art of Modern Calligraphy" by Molly Jacques, which you should definitely check, and I fell in love with calligraphy.

    Now I find this useful infographic with the basics of calligraphy, including tools. In case you want to try your skills you should try to do those exercise. 

    In both cases, (the classes from molly and this infographic) they ask you simple tools to begining your training:

    Books.

    In case you’re most an analog vintage retro-old guy, and you prefer to read a real book that stuck your nose in a monitor these are cool option for calligraphy beginners (the last to images):

    The theory of false starts posits that a trend starts as a strong backlash against an existing condition. Ridiculed at the onset, it will resurface years later in a watered down version which is then adopted by the mainstream. The theory may apply to work by designers like Valentino, who 20 years ago created this camouflage patterned dress. Camouflage has gone mainstream nowadays, adapted into a hundred applications, from clothes to bed linens.
