Introduction to Italic : The Minuscules by Eleanor Winters 2021

Italic calligraphy, sometimes called Chancery Cursive, is a beautiful, legible script, often the first style of calligraphy students learn.  Originating in the late 15th century, it is the handwriting of the Renaissance.  This detailed step-by-step approach covers the use of the broad-edged pen, basic strokes, minuscule (lower-case) letters, and the principles of spacing.  This class is recommended for students unfamiliar with the broad-edged pen as well as  those who are looking for a detailed review of this delightful alphabet.
