New changes to the January 2012 version of Learn Italic Calligraphy iPhone app

My iPhone app, Learn Italic Calligraphy V3, still aimed at beginners, will have a few exciting additions!

Watch the video of V3!

1. Several lowercase videos have been completely re-shot to show their simple and swash styles side by side.

2. I reshot the “number” videos to show two versions of digits 0-3 and 5-9.

3. I added a new chapter to the book on how to center lines of text. You’ve seen those poems in calligraphy where all the lines of text are perfectly centered. How do they do that? Full-color photos show each step.

4. I added a large number of amazing video links to the app.

5. I expanded on several chapters in the book, adding a few more tips and information beginners should know about their equipment.

I am hard at work on the next version already. I’ve already reshot the capital letters to show their plain and swash versions side by side. All those videos need to be edited to replace the current videos. That’ll be in the February update to the app. I’ll include one-two more chapters in that version as well.

Then it’s on to create more calligraphic apps of different alphabet styles, with all videos in-app!

    I just purchased the app for my iPhone and really like it. I’m looking forward to the update as well. I’m curious though where I can find the PDF lined pages referred to in the app?

    Thanks in advance for any info.
    Thanks for the app!

      I’m glad you like the app! From the home page of the app, tap on Downloads. The URL will be in bold. Just type it into your browser and open it, and save it to disk.

      For those of you who don’t have the app, an explanation is in order. The Spacing Guides PDF has straight, round, and curvy parallel lines of various distances apart that you place under your paper as guidelines for your lettering. The lines are thick enough to be seen easily if you are using plain bond paper. I’ve used the pages myself when I want my text to go in a neat circle, or bob up and down like the sea, or just march like disciplined soldiers in a straight line.

      Set your text round and round…
      Set your text in a arc

      Let your text float like the sea…
      Curvy guidelines
