Down and Dirty Guide
"This is a down and dirty guide for learning the Copperplate Style. This book is great if you already know a bit about doing calligraphy and already have a few letter forms under your belt. This book will also make a great reference if you need to brush up on your letter forms. It starts with the base strokes then moves into the various groups of strokes to form letters.
If you are brand new to calligraphy, I would recommend that you hold off on purchasing this book until you have more experience.
This book is a guide and not a workbook with space for practicing within the book. There are a couple of grid sheets in the back of the book that you can duplicate or use as an under sheet for a guide."
