I've been wanting to learn some variants of the Blackletter family for some time now, even if my italic is far from where I want it to be. I guess, perfection is something we always try to achieve but will never achieve.
So, I ordered a second-hand copy of BlackLetter Primer by Paul Shaw, which arrived yesterday. After a quick glance, I realised that this is going to be a steeper learning curve than the italic learning curve.
I would be interested to hear about others' experience learning Blackletter, and also from people who have used the BlackLetter Primer book.
It's going to be a long journey for me, but I think it will be worth it to have more than one weapon in my arsenal.
