Calligraphy Art

These images of Calligraphy Art were found in the book Real Pen Work: Self-Instructor in Penmanship, published in 1881. It was subtitled: “Greatest Means Ever Known for Learning to Write an Elegant Hand. Nothing Like it Ever Published Before. Something Entirely New. Something that Everybody Wants. Something that has the most enthralling interest for all.” Wow! That’s a lot to live up to! The book shows how to hold the pen and shape letters correctly, and also how to use the Transfer Process to make these lovely designs of birds, fish, a horse, and other items. You might also enjoy some Free Calligraphy Alphabets and the Calligraphy Alphabet galleries as well.
