Broad Edge Pen Calligraphy / Need Gothic exemplar
« on: July 21, 2014, 05:39:44 AM »
Hi everyone

I have been teaching myself calligraphy for some time now and have chosen to take up gothic as the next hand that i would learn. The problem is that i am not particularly fond of the version of gothic that my reference manual has and i am looking for some help here.
I was hoping that one of you could help me find a good exemplar along with instructions explaining the finer points of the hand.

Thanks in advance

It would be nice to hear which of them needs the most amount of work and more importantly what details am i really missing, because i feel that i have reached a spot where i am no longer able to self critique myself on these hands.

Hi Everyone

I am Nishant from India, my education has been in the field of finance and i completed my chartered accountancy last year.
Struggling with the though for well over 6 months i finally decided that i would take my life in a new directions and i have taken up calligraphy, lettering and design full time. In the past 4-5 months i have had some practice of Foundational Hand, Roman Capitals, Uncials and Rustic Capitals. I plan to take on Copperplate next, but have been pushing it back for two reasons
1) It looks complicated, mores because of all the guides that need to be in place
2) Its beauty puts me in a spot where i feel that if i start practicing it i wouldn't be able to move forward with other hands.
