Vintage Calligraphy Instruction Book

22 Jun

These delicious pen strokes are from an old calligraphy instruction book. I’m determined to find out more about how everyone used to be a master of the pen back in the day. Sadly, I’m not sure of the date for this. Early 1900s perhaps?

Much more eye candy inside the post…

    Studies in Pen Art by William Edward Dennis was published in 1914.

        There are a couple of places that I use first to look for such data on books. First, the Library of Congress catalogue. Second, the used book search of AddAll.

        Unfortunately, as you probably already know or would have presumed, the LoC is not as complete as it is fabled to be; and the AddAll search will only work if some party in their dB actually has the thing for sale.
