I’m so happy to have found this, and I wouldn’t have if it weren’t for the youtube video showcasing it. This is excellent, and it lets me learn when I’m not around my pens or don’t have the ability to doodle. Great stuff!
The 1 of 2 Books You Need to Learn Copperplate Calligraphy
Dr. Vitolo is one of the authorities on Engrosser’s Script Calligraphy. In addition to beautifully executed calligraphy, there is ample analysis and history on how and why it is done…his methods are based heavily on what is taught through Zanerian College which has very strict guidelines but once you adhere to the method and dedicate enough time and discipline, the results make it all worth it.
Dr. Vitolo could have easily charged $50 a pop on this and I still would have bought it. But lo and behold! It’s free!
Oh, the only other book you need to learn Engrosser’s Script is the “Zanerian Manual.”
Amazing book by an amazing author
Dr. Vitolo - Many thanks for an amazing book and all of your incredible contributions to the world of penmanship!
