Beginning Western Calligraphy Tips : Western Calligraphy: Tracing & Spacing


So I want to talk a little bit about time-mannered
technique which is, which is called tracing. And the whole idea of tracing has to do with
figuring out where things are going to go, deciding how to put them there, putting them
in the right place. So in this case, what I’m after is a P that I want to put right
here so that I end up with Placing and Spacing. So just happens to have a P over here that
I have designed and so what I’m going to do is, I’m just going to trace over it, and I
can be making little adjustments along the way; say I want to change that shape just
a little tiny bit. Maybe I want to make this longer. It’s just the kind of thing that you
run into to do, in a whole bunch of different kind of work. And guess who is rushing the
job? In real life, you got to go slower than this. Now, let’s say, that I decide that,
that’s just the way I want it. I want it to look about like that. Okay. So, I maybe want
it to look like that. No, I want it to look like that. Make up your mind. Think about
this. Think about how this goes and this goes. Alright. So now what I have to do, if I want
to trace this, I’ve got to get and trace the back. Right?
