"P is for proportion. Proportion and symmetry make #Copperplate letterforms beautiful and elegant. The benefits of oval drills will be evident in majuscule P. The rear loop and front loop should look like running or rolling ovals.

"T is for "target." Aim high, friends!  T is also for "try to save paper and write on the guide sheet even though you're running out of space."  Note to self: capital shade must be thick. (20/26 #HandletteredABCs

😉 T is also for "try to save paper and write on the guide sheet even though you're running out of space." 😂😂😂 Note to self: capital shade must be thick.

"Q is for quality. Aim for quality over quantity. It's better to make a few graceful letters, than pages of disproportional, unbalanced letters.  Same reminders for O apply. My errors are quite evident in this photo. The inner curve is flat, as is the inner shade. ••• There are several variations of #Copperplate majuscule Q.

"Sorry for posting so late! I had a busy day. Majuscule E is a bit tricky to write. It's basically 2 ovals on top of each other. Don't make the two curves in line. The bottom shade will stick out slightly on the left. (07/14/2015)

Majuscule B.  #handletteredABCs

Majuscule B. Surprisingly, I had a bit of a struggle writing this letter this morning. I could have done better (the lower curve should stick out a bit more), so I'm going to practice some more when I get home.

"M is for majuscule, my favorite form of torture.  I find the letter M (and A and N) challenging because it begins with a hairline. I still struggle in maintaining the consistency of the the stroke angle when I write.  for M: The SHADES follow the slant, NOT the hairlines. • • •

"O is for oval. The oval is the fundamental shape of #Copperplate letterforms.  are some things I observed during my practice:  1) The hairline should be parallel to the slant. I notice that I have a tendency to veer away from 55 degrees when when doing the upstroke.  2) The second stroke is extended to the right. Try to maintain the top curve. I usually make the top flat if I'm not careful.
