Aksharaya calligraphy manuals

In the "shut up and take my money" department, Aksharaya have prepared six calligraphy manuals for the upcoming Typoday 2016 conference in Bangalore - introductory manuals for Devanagari, Nastaliq Urdu, Gujarati, Gumurkhi, Odia and Kannada.



If you email info@aksharaya.org, they'll courier copies to you after the conference.

  • Are they also available for people not visiting the conference ?
  • Yes, just email them. They are a non profit dedicated to raising awareness about Indic scripts, many of the people driving the org forwards are associated with the Ek Type foundry.
  • They are a non profit dedicated to raising awareness about Indic scripts…

    In that case they should just post hi-res scans to flickr under a CC license.

    Of course I have already proposed this :)

    Mine just arrived. They were 1450 Rupees for the full set of six manuals - that's $21 US plus shipping. They're quite short (about 14 pages each) and fairly basic, but they're wonderful introductions to the technicalities of working with each of the scripts. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of them.
