    The Copperplate is commonly used today, but I've never written such kind of Copperplate.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of pen is that? I'm trying to get started out with Copperplate, and all I'm using is a 1.0 ballpoint pen. @_@ Thanks in advance!

    Hello Hamid, I wanted to ask you if a standart version of copperplate exists. I have a book called 'A Bride's Guide to simple calligraphy' and Copperplate font in that book is shown as having quite a few ornate loops and swills while your letters don't seem to have it. This is fine with me, but I wanted to know if there actually is one right way to write copperplate, or can it differ from person to person?

    Dear Friends,

    If you would like to learn Copperplate, you should order:

    1- Some Brause nibs no. 361 and also a Brause Penholder through one of these

    2- A bottle of McCaffery ink from this website:

    This ink:—30ml–20.html#SID=231

    3- Some paper which are used for taking photocopy.

    I wonder if you are aware from the book I have written about teaching

    My book can be bought in these websites:

    United States:



    United Kingdom:


    It is worth mentioning that all English text of my book has been written in
    Copperplate style by me.

    The book has 8 color posters too.

    Please send your questions to my email address directly:

    With best wishes,

    Hamid Reza Ebrahimi
