LESSON 56

Exercise 65

In this exercise, the capital G is first composed of a count of three, then, without lifting the pen, followed by six revolutions of the inverted traced oval. Complete seventeen exercises in one minute. Count as follows: 1, 2–3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

Exercise 66

Carefully study the shape of the capital G before attempting to craft it; be sure that you know not only when you write a bad letter, but that you know why it is bad. One bad hit can ruin an otherwise good letter. Learn to spot bad moves. Write forty to fifty letters a minute. Count 1, 2, 3; or 1, stop, 3, for each letter.

Exercise 67

It’s a good business formula. A special instruction is unnecessary. Use your eyes. Make up to fifty in one minute.

Exercise 68

The angled finishing stroke gives a connective line for any letter that may follow, and also joins capitals for an extended exercise. Count 1, 2, for each letter, or 1–2, 3–4, 5–6, for each group of three. Make eighteen groups in one minute.

You aim before you shoot. You should study the instructions before practicing the exercises.
