Re: what to teach to calligraphers?



I don't remember who posted the following link:
http://idp.bl.uk/IDP/bookbinding/chooser-frameset.html
for the International Dunhuang Project, but I spent a
lot of time on that site and found it more than a little
inspiring. You may find a project for your students on
that site.
