Roman Calligraphy First Final Thoughts

calligraphy, thoughts

Having learned the Roman hand from ‘Calligraphy: Tools and Techniques for the Contemporary Practitioner’ by Gaye Godfrey-Nicholls, really the same book as ‘Mastering Calligraphy: The Complete Guide to Hand Lettering’, I do realise that it is a very simplified form. I don’t know how to create really beautiful Roman alphabet with the dainty serifs yet, so it’s safe to say that I have not quite mastered the Roman hand. I suppose it might be possible to self develop from this point, but I plan to learn from other books, exemplars, and manuscripts and truly grasp the hand. But for the meantime, onward to Foundational!

How did you learn your Roman hand?
