Description

This lettering manual is named "Preparations for Instruction" because it contains the notes handed out in the classroom by the author in 1971. Although slightly informal, this booklet contains some very useful advice, some beautifully executed sample plates, and a moving tribute to the author's teacher, John Howard Benson, author of the full-length classic, "The Elements of Lettering" (1950).
