This book was considered a standard text in the "field of hand lettering" during the 1940's and on. "Like calligraphy, hand lettering also requires discipline. It's a completely different form of discipline, as it is drawing letters as opposed to writing them, and are often very decorative. You also often have more control over the letters with hand lettering as opposed to calligraphy."
