Zentangle PRIMER Vol 1

Zentangle Primer - Volume 1March 5, 2016 For the last two years the founders of Zentangle, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, have been quietly working behind the scenes on their second book. And it’s here at last!!

Introducing Zentangle PRIMER Volume 1.

This much anticipated second publication is available now, and you can order yours here!

Zentangle PRIMER Volume 1 is intended to be a companion book to The Book of Zentangle and it is the same size and coffee table format as the first book. “It is the same dimensions with 187 pages of step-outs, tangles, and text in hardbound format.”

Yes, you read that right, this one has step-outs and tangles!! (See the BOOK REVIEW > ZENTANGLE PRIMER VOL 1 page for more details and tangler reviews.)

Rick writes,

“This book is an ‘old-world’ instructional that is simple in its delivery but with enough information to gently guide the novice, or enlighten the master. Whoever reads this, will find what they seek. Hidden in the margins and borders and exemplars are inspirations. Each time you leaf through its folios, you will find something new to spark your creativity. Each time you study it, you may find yourself going just a bit beyond what you previously thought possible.

Working solely on white tiles with black ink, this book digs deep into the fundamentals of the Zentangle method and teaches the techniques and tools you need to take your Zentangle practice where you want.

Here’s a look at its Table of Contents:

  • Dedication
  • Foreword
  • Introduction
  • The Zentangle Method
  • Lesson 1 – Your First Tile
  • Lesson 2 – Your Next Tile
  • Lesson 3 – String Theory
  • Lesson 4 – Shading
  • Lesson 5 – No Mistakes
  • Lesson 6 – More Tangles
  • Lesson 7 – Reticula and Fragments
  • Lesson 8 – A Zentangle Practice
  • Appendix A – Resources and Information
  • Appendix B – Glossary
  • Credits
  • Notes
  • Index
  • Colophon

In this book we introduce the terms “Reticula” and “Fragments.” We think you will find this approach adds a new and exciting aspect to your Zentangle explorations.

Our desire in creating this tome was that your copy will eventually have tattered corners, well-worn pages, and hand-drawn notes in its margins. A book that has been loved and used. It will become your go-to book of all things Zentangle.”

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H

    Linda or anyone – I’m hoping to buy both the Book of Zentangle and also Zentangle Primer 1 – I do not seem able to add more than one book to the cart – is there a trick to doing this that I’m missing?

    Thanks!

    Krystyna

      Hi Krystyna, until now they had to be ordered separately and then I refunded the shipping surcharge when the orders were shipped. However I’ve just added an option to purchase both Zentangle books together as a bundle – see Item #10 above. Thanks for asking and for the prompt to add this option! Cheers and happy tangling, Linda
