I'm working with the copperplate exemplar from The New Zanerian Alphabets and noticed that Zaner (I'm assuming it's Zaner) did not write it on a 55 degree slant but more upright. Zaner's 1917 exemplar on the other hand is. I have a few pages from the Zanerian Manual and it looks like Lupfer's examples are also less slanted. Does anyone know why that is?

Not sure if I'm posting in the right category. Please feel free to move this post.

I'm looking for someone or a small dedicated group to practice calligraphy with and exchange constructive feedback/encouragement via instagram, email, flickr, or yahoo group, etc. We can do weekly challenges together or something along those lines. Any hand is fine. I try to practice at least an hour a day and am working on copperplate/engrosser's script.

Please let me know if interested!

Hi everyone! Another calligraphy newbie from the Bay Area here. I've always had a fascination for letters and the alphabet in design and art so I am acticely exploring this interest by learning calligraphy. I started with copperplate about 2 months ago. As a former classical musician, learning this script fits well with the kind of deliberate practice I am used to and enjoy. Having dealt with overuse injuries in the past, I am especially interested in ways of practicing as tension free as possible.

I just took Nina Tran's copperplate workshop this past Sunday and am also taking a local, weekly copperplate class with Marian Gault. In my free time, I am a mom to 2 boys (ages 8 and 10) and a girl (age 5) ;). Looking forward to connecting with other calligraphy enthusiasts and learning from seasoned artists.
