IAMPETH "Ames' Guide..." Drills
« on: November 06, 2015, 03:24:01 PM »
I dug out my D.T. Ames book and found some great drills to help with whole-arm movement, flourishing and off-hand flourishing. The online book is located on the IAMPETH rare books site http://www.iampeth.com/ames-guide-self-instruction-practical-and-artistic-penmanship. I attached a few pages of the drills I am focusing on.

I dated my practice sheets and I hope to see some progress. I am on day two, and I feel a lot more confident on some one them. I wanted to share for people in need of new drill exercises.

May the ovals be with you.

One day we can only hope to control the pen like Ames did.
