Highly illustrated step-by-step manual clearly explains the in-depth details of copperplate work for anyone wishing to learn this key element of calligraphy. With clear instructions for basic techniques, how to form each individual letter and number, grids, materials, illustrated aspects of the historical background and much more, this well researched and highly respected manual has been in print for calligraphers, artists and students for over 40 years.     
Admired for its beauty, grace and fluidity, copperplate calligraphy is perhaps the most popular writing style for social correspondence. This practical guide teaches students to handle the alphabet, as well as punctuation, colour and choice of paper; how to write simple paragraphs, quotations, poems, cards, invitations and more. Numerous black-and-white illustrations bring the information to life. Also contains a full bibliography and useful index.
