Two Italic Calligraphy Alphabets (2008)
Here are two Chancery Italic alphabets I used for the two calligraphy workshops I taught on 28 August 2008 and on the same date in 2009. The first alphabet shows the order of strokes for each letter, the dot marking where the pen begins writing. In hindsight the alphabets are far from perfect, but they are, in my view at least, clear enough for the beginning calligrapher. I hope to revise them sometime and improve on the letterforms, and include some brief side notes on how to hold the pen.
