Long out of print, this guide to Copperplate Calligraphy is considered one of the best books devoted to Copperplate. Contains very detailed and rigid instructions. Covers the basic strokes of Copperplate, followed by letter-by-letter instruction (numbers too!). Guide sheets are provided in the book. A historical introduction traces the growth of Copperplate from its roots in the French ronde of the seventeenth century to its adaptation by English clerks into their copybooks, and the development of the style known as English Round Hand.
