For those interested in learning the craft of the brush and pen, this book provides a guide to each step. For the student of the hand-lettered script, it provides a guide to the development of calligraphy from antiquity to the electronic age. Every major form of Latin-based script is covered from Imperial and Roman hands, through Gothic and Renaissance scripts to Italic and Copperplate. Step-by-step illustrations and descriptions explain the construction of each letter, the correct pen-hold and pen-angle, the proportions of the letters, and how to lay them out on a page. Exercises supplement the basics learnt while examples of historical and contemporary hand-lettering provide inspiration.
