Running script can be executed quickly and at the same time is easily recognizable. It is the most practical calligraphy style for daily communication. Learners of Chinese language who have some command of the regular script calligraphy will find it rewarding to learn running script. Once a student of both the Chinese language and calligraphy masters this style, he or she will write a beautiful hand at a fairly quick speed. If we compare the regular script with learning to walk, the study of running script will make a dancer.
Specially prepared for Western readers, this book has detailed information about the tools required, the ways of controlling the brush and will guide the reader through the execution of running script calligraphy, together with enlightening comparisons of both regular and running scripts.
