Italic Letters-- Calligraphy & Handwriting -- Revi


Category: Handwriting


Inga Dubay, Barbara Getty


Copyright/published Year: 1992 by Portland St Univ


ISBN: 0876780915


Binding: Paperback


Italic Letters: Calligraphy & Handwriting by Inga Dubay and Barbara Getty is the most comprehensive how-to workbook available on learning italic, with 128 pages of step-by-step, beautifully illustrated instruction. The teaching method is hands-on, containing page after page of examples to trace and letters to copy. Each letter is presented for use with both a monoline pen for informal and rapid writing, and an edged pen, for an elegant, more formal hand, often used for invitations and special correspondence.

Dubay and Getty take you through basic italic, formal italic, chancery italic and cursive italic, four classic hands that will earn you a lifetime of compliments in both your formal calligraphy and everyday handwriting. Once you have mastered the letterforms, the authors show you how to use your calligraphic skills to design and produce posters, invitations, letters, cards, booklets, and envelopes.

This resilient book is for serious calligraphers and those who simply want better penmanship.

Italic Letters is for professional and amateur calligraphers, art teachers, pen enthusiasts, and those interested in the book arts. It's also for students, business people, homemakers; virtually anyone who wants to learn calligraphy and improve handwriting legibility. In this age of computer-generated letters and forms, more than ever, people admire the beauty and personal impact of handwritten.
