About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The book was published in 1987 and the author born in 1915, at the tail end of the `old-world', when Spencerian and Copperplate scripts were more widely practiced and enjoyed. I like the fact that he must have been about 70 years old when he prepared this work, making his steady hand, smooth and fluid hairlines all the more notable.
An aspect I particularly value and enjoy is that, unlike some Copperplate books where every stroke is absolutely perfect, this work is presented unretouched. As such it is far more 'human' and shows me what I can realistically aspire to.
Elegant, very useful, great value for money, highly recommended!
Techniques as copperplate are especially important in producing cursive, lettering certificates, or addressng evelope. It is essential in being a well-rounded calligrapher.
