INTI\ODUCTION

TEACHERS of courses in commercial


artJmechanical drawing' and dra.ftins' will
find this book a practical guide to letteri~
and poster art. All such courses shoula
include a working knowledge of the basic
alphabets and the tools best suited to
their production.

STUDENTS who follow instructions given


herein and practice regularly and intelligently
can be assured of satisfactory progress, for
anyone who can write can learn to letter. No
unusual talent is required.
CRAFTSMEN can improve their tech-

niques and increase their incomes by using


this book for instruction and inspiration.
Merchandising' depends so much upon
showcards for quick turnover that we
seldom see displays without them.
Supplying this need means that experienced, versatile letterers are in.
demand everywhere.
for steady
employment, few occupations offer the
opportunities enjoyed by poster artists
who are able to do good lettering at a
commercial speed.

'11ie ROMAN Alphabets


The Roman alphabet is both beautiful and usefUl

It lends itself to individual modifications and


type innovations which are usually created simply
by cha~ng the design of the serif (see page 3) or
by adding a few ornamental touches to the body of
the letter.
Por descripjiVe copy or/or Words of special t!1H-phasis, Italics caJI be emploged effectiJ!e/1/.
Italic letters are simplg slanted Vertical letters .

In learning the single stroke"Roman, analyzed on


pages 17-21 study the letters carefully before usin~
the pen. Note where strokes are started and ended,their
order of construction.and bow the pen is manipulated in
producing them. Make a page of each letter, using a No.
2 style C pen. Try to combine .a smooth arm move..ment with a flexible manipulation of the pen. Next,
make several pages of the full alphabets.
Letters
should be one inch high at first. ruling three guide lines
for each line of copy. Keep the serifs as unifornL as
possible and try to equalize the space between letters as
1

you work.

ALL ~~~II

SPACING
I. Different letters and dividing areas seldom occupy like spaces.
2. Words rt"ad better when the spaces between the letters a<e less than half the space occupied by
the letters themselves.
3. For convenience, letters may be divided into three classes: Regular, E-HlM-N and U;
Irregular, A-F-J-K-t-P-RTYW-X-Y and Z; Circular, B-C-D-G-0-(P)Q-(R).S& and?.
4. Ugly gaps between irregular shaped letters can be avoided by fitting thern closer together
according to their shape.
5. Circular and irregular shaped letters should cut into the spaces between them and the letter.
adjoining their .cucved or jrregular sides, the amount thus taken from the "dividing" aetas
helps compensate for the extra space created by the form of the letter.
6. Lettexs can also be 8<0uped as Narrow, B-E-P-1-J-LPSTY and ?; Nomzal, C.DGH-K-0

Q.a.u.v.x.z and&: and Wide, A-M-Nand W.

7. Compressing a wide letter to make it lit into a space that suits a narrow or a normal letter
causes it to appear blacker than the rest of the letters. Aod stretching a narrow Iotter into the
space of a wide One makes 11 appear lighter than the rest.

Simplified spacing guide for different letters-

This leuering chart illustrate.~ how different combinarions should be spaced. The full space as
it appears between two straight lerrers is shown by the stippled block marked "A." Block "B" illusrraces
the dividing area between two circular len<rs. Note how the lcners cut into it. Block "C" shows how
the area appears between a circular and a sruighr letter. Block "0" shows the a.rea berween an irregular
and a straight lener Block "E" shows the area berween an irregular and a circular letter. Note that
the exrra. space at the top and bonom of a circular letter approximately equals wha< the letter cuts our
of the dividing area - and the irregular lerrers offer a similar example that requires closet fining

Tht examples shown here illusrrare how che different combinations work out in use.

In the word

"5padns" lerrers of the same si1.e an<l shape are spaced both ways.
Note how legibility and unity
are desrroyed by the mechanical arrangement. Using a "yard-srick" to measure the width or distance
between different lerrets seldom produces pleasins results and is generally detrimental to legibility.

The yard-stick spacing of " Minatown" shows what happens when leners are all fined into like
areas wi th the some distance between them. Nore how sporty the different lerrers look, especially the
M. A and Wand how unrelated the irregular letters appear. By making !heM, N, A, 0 and W wider
~nd ficcing the arreuular leuers opci<;ally co compensate for their shape: an even cone is obuined over all.
