    Long Awaited and Excellent!

    I have been using Eleanor Winters' books for over ten years as a reference guide and as a teaching aid for classes I give in introductory Italic and Copperplate. Ms. Winters' new book, which covers "the basics and beyond" of Italic and Copperplate, highlights the similarities and differences in these two popular hands with characteristically clear explanations and illustrations. I intend to use it as a textbook when I conduct classes at the intermediate and advanced levels. Although there are many introductory calligraphy books available, Italic and Copperplate Calligraphy: the Basics and Beyond fills a very large space in our calligraphy library, providing instruction, exercises, and examples for students who are ready to go beyond the basics. I have been waiting for the publication of this book for a long time, and I am delighted that it is finally available.
