I’m so happy to have found this, and I wouldn’t have if it weren’t for the youtube video showcasing it. This is excellent, and it lets me learn when I’m not around my pens or don’t have the ability to doodle. Great stuff!55
Dr. Vitolo is one of the authorities on Engrosser’s Script Calligraphy. In addition to beautifully executed calligraphy, there is ample analysis and history on how and why it is done…his methods are based heavily on what is taught through Zanerian College which has very strict guidelines but once you adhere to the method and dedicate enough time and discipline, the results make it all worth it. Dr. Vitolo could have easily charged $50 a pop on this and I still would have bought it. But lo and behold! It’s free! Oh, the only other book you need to learn Engrosser’s Script is the “Zanerian Manual.”55
Dr. Vitolo - Many thanks for an amazing book and all of your incredible contributions to the world of penmanship!55
I can't download the book. It just disappears when I click download.55
Dr. Joseph M. Vitolo, Thank you very much for taking the time and utilizing the resources to offer us this amazing instructional book, free of charge, on the beautiful and elegant writing of the Copperplate style.55
Dr. Joe Vitolo has created a brilliant format for learning. I've had his iBook, Pointed Pen Calligraphy: "Script in the Copperplate Style" for almost a week now and am able to apply what I am learning immediately because of his thorough approach. The fact that I can hear Dr. Vitolo and watch him demonstrate each step in the process of creating first the basic forms and later the more advanced ones is remarkable to me. This is an essential resource to anyone wishing to learn to write in the Copperplate style. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you, Dr. Vitolo for making these important study materials available to anyone with an iPad, (and yes, I did purchase my first iPad especially so I could download this wonderful book!)55
What an amazing gift from a master of this script. Like most calligraphers, I am a visual learner. Dr. Joe Vitolo understands this and offers video presentations showing exactly what he is writing about. It just couldn't get any better. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn Copperplate. Thanks Dr. Vitolo for this amazing book!55
