Book Italic Letters By B. Getty and I. Dubay
Originally published by Van Nostrand Reinhold in 1984, this revised edition provides for the self-teaching of four italic scripts. The first three--basic italic, formal italic, and chancery italic--are fairly standard calligraphy forms. The fourth style, cursive italic, is designed for use as everyday handwriting. Presented in the authors' previous books, the eight-volume Italic Handwriting Series and Write Now, this style was devised to facilitate the transition from printing to cursive writing. The book provides practice space
directly below the calligraphic examples (and instructions to use tracing paper), that make comparison and correction easy. The authors include a section on ideas to make
your own invitations, announcements, cards and other creative ways to use your new writing skills!
