Gaye Godfrey-Nicholls is a professional calligrapher and teacher based in Perth, Australia.
"Godfrey-Nicholls, an Australia-based artist, elucidates the art of hand-lettering in this comprehensive work. The majority of the book is devoted to calligraphic hands, or different styles of writing. Each hand includes a brief history, exercises for practicing the basic shapes and strokes, foundational groups of letters arranged by type, and variations on the alphabet.... Scrapbookers and other paper crafters interested in exploring this timeless art will find ample guidance here." - Library Journal Starred Review
