In this practical book, John Stevens shares his brush knowledge and provides exercises developed and refined over many years of teaching brush lettering workshops. This is a progressive program of instruction that leads to classic Trajan Capitals – and beyond. He introduces you to the brush and how it contrasts with the pen. Brush techniques follow, where you learn how to prepare, hold, and load your brush. Brush dynamics are discussed as you make your first strokes. You learn how the brush moves when you change angles and make curves and other turns. You get to know the broad brush better with a first alphabet, Neuland. You learn basic strokes, joins, and special strokes. You explore texture and rhythm. From the angular Neuland, you move on to a rounded Roman Capital form. Then from that alphabet, you move to extensive instruction for the Trajan letterforms, including a full-size exemplar alphabet spanning 27 pages. Final chapters take your letters into words and works, cover other alphabets and variations, and present a gallery full of inspiration.

Special offer: Pay now by check and pay only $24.95 and get free media mail shipping.

Your check will be cashed soon after receipt, and the funds will be applied toward the production of the book. While it is hoped that the book can be shipped within a year, it may be longer; John is still in the early stages of writing the book and creating the instructional diagrams and exemplar alphabets.
