Best works to trace on?
« on: January 23, 2019, 01:30:52 PM »
Hi all, I've been practicing on copperplate for a couple months and some posts in this forum suggested tracing as a practice method. I thought this idea was very practical on building some muscle memory. However, I wasn't able to find a lot of best-suited works for my purpose after some research. Most copperplate works online are exemplars, but it would be really nice if I can find complete writings so I can print and trace to practice with the spacing, breaks, shading width etc. I did find an awesome sample from IAMPETH (attached), but I would really appreciate more!

A big thank you in advance! :)

p.s. hope I'm not posting too much!

I love Baird’s examples. There are lots of good samples in the Zanerian Manual. It is available for free download from Masgrime’s site.
