By Sarah Richardson

With so many calligraphy artists creating beautiful work today, the dip pen is truly having a renaissance. This book will give you a good foundation to begin your study by providing information from the best tools to the correct way to form the foundational shapes of the letterforms.

You will be introduced to the Copperplate style, recognized by its fifty-five degree slant angle and the contrast between the thin up-strokes and shaded down-strokes. While calligraphy is an art in writing, it is not the same as handwriting. It is the art of drawing letters, so don’t worry if you don’t have perfect handwriting. This book will have you making amazing Copperplate in no time.
