Slightly off the track------
I particularly like and have found the following books for hand
lettered alphabets (that are historical/complete) of invaluable worth:
1. Hermann Deggering's book "Lettering,"
2. John Woodcock's (intro by Stan Knight)'s "A Book of Formal Scripts"
3. Michelle P. Brown's "A Guide to Western Historical Scripts from
Antiquity to 1600"
(So many of the calligraphy books out there are just a modern
calligrapher's interpretation of our period scripts.-L's personal
opinion and guilty author!)
Anyone else wanna share favorites for study/reference?
Or study techniques/execution short-cuts?
