I found this article in the Penman’s Art Journal, September 1886 where Professor Toland was smack-talking oblique holders. Boy, you can see him laying it on!
And then three months later Mr. Russell had to bring him down a peg or two.
I enjoy reading these old journals and finding little gems like this from time to time.
I graduated from Ringling some years ago and majored in illustration. I did not take any calligraphy courses there though, as I wasn’t interested in it then. They have a pretty good graphic design department.060913
