Formal Italic Capitals
I am in the process of teaching Formal Italic to a very talented and quick learning student. She is keeping me on my toes!
Here is an exemplar of some of the Capitals that I made today for her using a Pilot Parallel Pen. (I will post the other letterforms tomorrow.) I can't say enough about the ease of use of those pens. Very user friendly!
If you are interested in learning this "hand," be sure to send me a comment, or you can email me at Kerrlligraphy@gmail.com and I will give you details.
It is not unusual for a beginner to start out learning Formal Italic. It is a beautifully rhythmic style, that when mastered, can be artistically altered to create imaginative and lovely works of art.
Come join me as well as others in our endeavors to make beautiful letterforms!
