Overview
Excerpt from A d104-Book of Free-Hand Lettering

The changes in this edition of Free-hand Lettering are so numerous and radical that the result is a new book, rather than a revision of the old one. The text has been entirely rewritten, and new plates and figures have been drawn. The proportions of letters have been greatly improved, and a distinctly higher standard has been set for the student. At the same time, he is given careful directions to enable him to approach the standard. These directions have been made as explicit and clear as possible, for the author is well aware that the time which can be given to this work in the technical schools is very limited.

Throughout the book there is a constant attempt to present principles which will appeal to the student's reason, rather than to give rules which will only tax his memory; that is, an efiort is made to show that the details, which at first sight may seem numberless and involved, have a logical basis. When this basis is once understood, no effort of memory is necessary for the proper handling of details. On the other hand, teachers should remember, especially in the first stages of the work, that it is not sufficient for students to understand reasons. In order that they may attain the object of their work in this subject, they must acquire skill in execution; wherefore the definite directions for performing exercises.

There is repeated insistence in the text that lettering belongs in the realm of design. If the work is approached with this idea, it will be done with pleasure, and with a sense that it is a means of expressing individuality.
