Real Pen: Self Instructor in Penmanship

A rare book on penmanship.

Otherwise known as “The Golden Gems of Penmanship,” published in 1884 by Knowles and Maxim. This is a beautiful book on the artistry of calligraphy. This rare vintage instructional book has many examples, but little explantation, contrary to the books stating it has complete instructions. I tried the exercises and while being very fun and meditative, I still have a long way to go to produce something this beautiful.
