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.

Create beautiful and colorful script letters anywhere, anytime without having to deal with liquid ink. One section covers brush-written ornamental flourishes. Linda’s favorite brush markers for script are Pitt Brush Pens (M43, M43-LS, M43-LS2) and a Pentel Sign Pen (M97).
