About This Book

A book and CD-Rom for first-time learners of Chinese calligraphy. This beautifully illustrated book explores how Chinese words first began, how to draw the 8 strokes, what "radicals" are, and how to use the brush, the paper and the ink to enjoy writing in Chinese. The inclusion of an interactive CD-Rom allows learners to watch videos of Chinese calligraphers, listen to how characters are pronounced in Chinese, take memory tests and print out character practice pages. There are also demonstrations of correct posture and arm movements.
