Copperplate Calligraphy (Dover Books on Lettering, Calligraphy and Typography). This book expands on the basics of Italic and Copperplate and includes an introduction into flourishing and Illumination. I particularly like the way, in all of her books, she shows examples of poorly spaced or incorrectly penned letters. She explains why they are not correct and how to correct them. This, in my opinion, is what is missing in most other instruction books on calligraphy.

I have a library of calligraphy books and really did not need another. I bought this book as a reference book to go back and look at the basics even though I have been doing calligraphy for some time. The reason I bought it was because it was by Eleanor Winters who is such an amazing calligrapher. If anyone is looking to picking up a pen and learning calligraphy this is an excellent book to have.

One of the Best books I've seen on italic and copperplate calligraphy. Good, basic, on-point information. If you are a calligrapher with an interest in either of these fonts, I highly recommend it, especially if your are starting out. There is a lot of good information for those with some experience under their belts as well.

I think it's the best book on the subject. It covers all the items I'm interested in and more. You could really learn something here and if you have the patience which I'm learning you could really be good at this Calligraphy art, the right materials, pens, paper, ink, but be patient and it will come to you. Enjoy!!

Of course notice who wrote it. More insights as an intermediate student in both italic and engrossers hand plus examples. It opened some doors for me to get past being stuck with just simple lettering and form I couldn't seem to get past. I believe this is going to help open a new vista for me but I'm just starting her recommendations. I've learned you don't get to see what your after until you've put the practice in and this art is practice, study, then practice more. I don't think anyone who wants to take italics or engrossers hand further could possibly be disappointed in this book.

Show you exactly the next steps for beginners to calligraphy. Explains the whys and then gives you a project to work on. I love this book.
A great instructional book for both Italic and Copperplate. Being a beginner, I was pleased to find it just what I had hoped. It is not too "heady" and she has good practice projects. I would say that it was worth purchasing.
