Copperplate Grids
« on: January 30, 2014, 05:16:42 AM »
I just updated my Copperplate grids, added some new x-heights and thought maybe someone is interested! These are with x-heights from 3 to 10 mm with the standard ratio (3:2:3 descender:x-height:ascender) with 2 sheets with a smaller line spacing for more condensed writing. If anyone has a question, just ask!

And no guarantee that they are 100% correct! ;)

Love the 4mm! Thank you!

Glad to hear that. I'm mostly using the larger ones, as I'm still working on achieving good form, but the 4mm one seems good for actual writing.

Thank you so much, Estefa and Martin!  I'm so thankful for the different sizes.  I was going to try to come up with my own in Photoshop, but you all did the work for us!  ;)
