    This Book project is a crash course about chinese calligraphy. It teaches you the basics of chinese calligraphy and also offers you the tools you need, to implement what you have learnt. It will walk you through the philosphy, tools, fonts, strokes and also how to paint select flowers known as the "four gentlemen". After you've learnt the basics, there are 2 different types of paper in the back. You practice writing with water on the blue paper and it disapears afterwards. Once you feel confident you write with ink on rice paper. The entire project was produced by myself. The case has a wooden core, the slider is made with lightweight centafoam. The book-binding is a coptic stitch allowing it to lay flat on the ground. This project was realized as a semester's assignment in February 2014 at the University of applied sciences in Constance, Germany. Read Less
