Examples of flourishes
« on: January 18, 2019, 12:07:07 AM »
Does anyone have any resources or examples of flourishes for foundation or italic calligraphy?

Chapter 10 in Italic and Copperplate Calligraphy: The Basics and Beyond by Eleanor Winters would be one such resource.

Pages 140 and 141 of The Calligrapher's Bible (2003) by David Harris are focussed on italic flourished minuscules, if you prefer something more concise (but limited). I only just opened up that book for the first time tonight, after buying it from Amazon.

Plus, the classics. Classic italic copybooks are available for free online and most of them contain examples of flourished capitals.
