Carolingian Final Thoughts

6 Months Later and One Hand instead of Three

I had just been on a practice frenzy last week – finishing my last Carolingian drills by doing them twice a day when I could. On my last post I planned to finish learning 3 hands in 6 months, but sadly, it didn’t happen. I only ended up finishing one, even with the drills cut in half, and only just started on the Gothic exercises.


Why I Decided to Cut My Calligraphy Practice Drills in Half

I have finished learning Uncial hand from the book Mastering Calligraphy: The Complete Guide to Hand Lettering. It’s been roughly a year since I started learning from the book, beginning with Roman Capitals.
