Looking For Specific Old Calligraphy Book



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

My nan gave me her old calligraphy book when I was in my teens, but it wandered off when I was living in a houseshare a few years ago.

 

It was excellent - very clear and simply laid out, with a "poster script" I've not seen since, so would like to try and find a copy.

 

My Googlings & searching of Abe Books & Amazon have so far come to naught, so I turn to you all!

 

It was slightly smaller than A4, paperback, and only about 32 pages (ish). The cover was very plain, a dark greyish colour, with just the title & publisher. I think it was published by Pitman. It could have been from any time between the late 1920s - mid 1950s.

 

I don't remember the title, which is my main problem!

 

The poster script was described as being designed to be written swiftly, with most letters being made of a maximum of 2 strokes. Visually it looked like an adaptation of foundational.

 

Does this ring any bells at all?!

I might have found it!

 

Pen Lettering for Beginners by Maurice G Down.

 

I've ordered a copy from Abe Books & have my fingers crossed :D

 

Was it the one? I have a few ancient, OOP calligraphy ebooks I could look through.
