Synopses & Reviews
Far and away the most popular, most authoritative book in the field, this little volume takes the reader through every stage in the study of Italic handwriting and calligraphy. Separate sections on Roman capitals as well as page and book design make this a complete course.
This book is designed for the use of students and teachers who believe that they need more detailed direction in learning Italic than is available in Mr. Fairbank's Manual or in Mr. Benson's The First Writing Book. It is recommended that these three books be studied together, especially the writings of Alfred Fairbank, to whom we are all indebted for the Italic revival.
