Copperplate 3/15/2017

Tried my hand at copying a page from The Universal Penman. It was a definite challenge. I used a less flexible nib and smaller guidelines than usual so I could match the spacing in the book. Everything worked out alright I guess. If I found myself struggling to keep everything the right slant from time to time, I misspelled a word, and my pen blotted badly halfway into the page. 

It was a good learning experience.
