The Art of



Scranton, Pa.

The accompanying reproduction of
a piece of engrossing belongs to the
type or style known
as illuminating, and is
an example of the
treatment of work or-
iginating in the 14th
and continuing thru
the 15th century. It
will be noted that the
entire border design
springs from the large
initial "D" and is car-
ried around the entire design, forming
a very beautiful frame effect for the
reading matter of the resolutions. The
entire background of the border de-
sign is burnished gold and the initial
"D" and ornamental portions of the
border are in various shades of Ver-
million, French blue, yellows and em"
erald green. The lighter portions of
the border are the blues and the dark-
est the vermillion. All of the colors
employed are opaque, being mixed
with Chinese white. The lighter
shades of the color are painted on
first and the darker ones in the order
of their density. The grotesque ani-
mals found in the border are also of
the period above mentioned. After
the painting in done outline the entire
design in black with a No. 5 Soen-
necken pen. The white dots and lines
throughout the work are Chinese
white, the straight lines being ruled
in with a ruling pen and the curved
ones freehand with a No. 1 brush.
This work was executed on a sheet of
Reynolds bristol board, four ply,
which presents a firm smooth surface
absolutely necessary for this particu-
lar style of work. The size of the
engrossing is 12x.l6 l / 2 inches. The
main lines in the delicate tracery used
as a filler throughout the border are
black and the short branches leading
off from them are a light red. The
circles at the end of the short branch-
es are filled in with green and the
center of each is a dot of burnished
gold. The tracery used in the reading
matter is in red.

The initial "R" and all of the lower
case letters in the word "Democratic '
is in two shades of vermillion. Ini-
tial "W" in "Whereas" in French blue
with stripe of red in the center.

Initials "H, G, and C" in the words
"Honorable Grover Cleveland" in two
shades of blue with background of
gold, and the lower case letters in
two shades of vermillion.

Initial "R" in first "Resolved" i i
two shades of red with gold back-
ground and lower case letters in two
shades of blue. The second "Re-
solved" is just the reverse in color
scheme. To those who are not fa-
miliar with the beautiful art of illumi-
nating would say the original work

BROAD-PEN LETTERING, by E. A. Lupfer, with Zanerian

LESSON No. 5— Rapid Old English

No letter is used so extensively and is so artistic and enduring as the Old English. You will do well to master
it in its various forms.

The alphabet herewith represents the rapid, unretouched style used in filling diplomas, etc., where speed is
required rather than fine finish. No retouching with a fine pen is necessary except where a mishap occurs.

Beginners should use a No. 1 broad pen before using smaller sizes of pens.

Use head and base lines and see that you follow them closely, for uniformity of height is necessary as well as
uniformity of spacing. The space between letters should be the same as in letters. The letters should be taller
than wide. Avoid square looking letters as a rule. Lettering should be neither too narrow nor too wide. It should
be solid, not scattered. Where we have to crowd lettering we make it tall and narrow, and where we wish to
spread it to cover space we make it low and wide. Unless you follow this plan your work will look crowded or
squatty, or not proportioned well.

There are many styles of Old English, and the ideals of penmen as to the standard vary slightly. The alphabet
presented herewith represents our ideal of the standard. All should master the standard form before cultivating
individuality. While individuality is commendable when it is good, you must know the standard styles to avoid
mistakes and freakishness.

Study the joinings, corners and parts of letters, etc. See how often certain strokes are repeated in different

The "spurs" in Old English should be neither too small nor too large. Let them extend about half the width
of the pen, or one nib on the small letters. The spurs in the center of the capitals should be rather large and cir-
cular with sharp hair-line beginnings.

The head and base strokes should slant in the same direction and be curved evenly. They should not be too
large and heavy. Study proportion.

Study and practice carefully and you will make headway. After you have learned to hold the pen and dip ink
carefully, (dip slowly and keep ink-retainer clean), your biggest problem is to get an accurate ideal of the forms.

Short Cut to
Plain Writing

The book is typical of the title, a real
"Short Cut to Plain Writing." But if your
own writing is plain, this book may help
you to make it still better looking by aiding
you to discover the poor places in it. Then,
too, it gives the clue to less practice and
more improvement and less teaching and
better writing on the part of your pupils.

It's different; it's unconventional; it's stimu-
lating; it's helpful; it's concrete in its sug-

To Primary Teachers
Interested in Writing

Stories appeal to children. They live and revel in
the world of Fairy and Fable.

Can you tell a good story or relate a fable that
connects with the work at hand? If so, you'll enjoy
all the more "Funny Fable Folk" in writing by Jno.
O. Peterson and Alice E. Strong. If you can't tell a
story, perhaps this book of fable and fancy in writing
will lead you to discover the secret and philosophy of
both writing and story telling. Who knows?

Anyhow, its a unique little volume designed to delight children
and to relieve the teaching of writing of so-called drudgery.

The picture and motion exercises lead to letter motions and
forms and thus to writing. Something original and yet simple and
easily employed and applied.

Birds. Frogs. Mice. Bees. Fishes and Woolyworms all act out
the art of writing in their tryouts at flying and jumping and run-
ning and swimming, thus suggesting and stimulating the first
struggles in handwriting.

It is not so much a system as an inspiration, suggestion, and
method to interest, instruct and encourage the children in their
primitive practices.

It is concrete in its philosophy of motion and thus it uncon-
sciously stimulates and safeguards motor activity— the basis of
real writing.

tions, 24 pages, about 5x8 inches, post paid, 50 cents.

Rapid Lettering

This style is based on the Roman
letters and is recommended as a most
practical style for
purposes where speed
and legibility count
for more than accur-
acy or artistic finish.
Rule lines for height
about one inch apart,
also vertical lines to
prevent sloping let-
ters. Use pencil only
to indicate general
size and spacing of letters. Ester-
brook's drawing and lettering pen No.
2 was used for alphabet. The thin
stroke of letter represents width of
pen, two strokes being required for
thick part of letters. This letter re-
quires no retouching, and its accuracy
must depend entirely upon your skill
instead of any mechanical devices
whatever. Good spacing and good
form are, of course, highly essential
for best results. A No. 5 broad point-
ed pen was used for the smaller let-

The initial "A" is highly decorative
and will afford considerable careful
study. First, sketch in pencil, aiming
for balance and action, then follow

with a detail drawing, suggesting
color values.

Aim for strong, vigorous lines in
your color tones, varying the thick-
ness and spacing of lines to produce
the different gradations of light and
shade. Observe how effectively the
leaves melt into the solid background.

Try your hand on a similar design,
making changes here and there to
suit the purpose required. Aim for
strength and contrast in rendering
color values. Balance and action are
important requisites in any design.
