The copperplate style of calligraphy, characterized by thick downward strokes and hairline-thin upward strokes, is one of the most beautiful forms of this most beautiful art.
This remarkably simple, straightforward, and easy-to-follow guide to copperplate lettering takes you step by step through the entire process: the nine basic strokes, how to assemble the strokes into lowercase and uppercase letters, how to join letters into words, and how to form numerals and punctuation. Bracketing the instructional chapters is information on materials and proper preparation as well as further suggestions. Sixty-four illustrations accompany the text and practical exercises are provided at each stage. The volume also contains guide sheets, in three different sizes, for use underneath your own translucent paper.
The authors have taught copperplate calligraphy in many adult education courses. These years of invaluable experience are clearly evident in this book, making it the logical choice for anyone interested in this calligraphic style. There is no finer instruction for mastering the elegance of this popular form of calligraphy.
