Copperplate Variations

The more you look the more you see. The more you see the less you seem to be able to achieve. I keep coming back to the fact that there is SO much to see in these 17th century letterforms AND the doing increase in complexity because the nibs today at so much finer that minute variations in shape and approach can dramatically alter the direction of the following strokes as well and the internal space of the letter you are aiming for to execute. I hope the commentary on my approach is giving you some insight in these letters. I would love to hear your thoughts on the commentary and how it is helping you approach these letters. This will be an ongoing series to help get you interested in the shapes we have in English Roundhand but also in the hopes that it will encourage you to do some historical research.
