A model book as well as an instruction book, "The Technique of Copperplate Calligraphy" is completely written in roundhand. By carefully studying its elegant script and practicing the formation of letters according to the author's expert advice, even beginning calligraphers can achieve mastery of the influential and distinctive copperplate style."
