Learning Copperplate Calligraphy: 10 things I learned in 10 days

Copperplate is a lovely, focused, meticulous form of calligraphy script writing, with beautiful flourishing and rhythm in the text. It focuses on the appearance, on drawing the letters attentively, carefully. I started practicing Copperplate (Also called Engraver’s script or Engrosser’s script) and thought I’d share what I learned in the first 10 days of learning.

I write with a dip pen and ink, using a straight holder, as I’m left-handed.

This is a series of 10 videos, in which I discuss 10 things:
