Practice: Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy:A Step-by-Step Manual (cont.)

I am continuing with Chapter 3 and working on the capital letters.  I am concentrating on pausing for a full stop between strokes to get the squared off termination to the tops and bottoms of the stems on some letters.  I am also focusing on the fact that Copperplate is NOT running hand style...meaning you lift your pen often when writing as opposed to keeping your pen on the page while writing full words.  I can see the improvements.
