Copperplate calligraphy (also known as ‘round-hand’ or ‘Anglaise’), is a western, cursive calligraphy style. Copperplate writing came back into use in the late 19th century. It was revived by a key arts and crafts movement figure, William Morrison.
Copperplate, unlike other western calligraphy styles, uses a pointed calligraphy pen. The difference between the copperplate style and the traditional Western calligraphy style, other than the pen differences, is the technique used with the tool to produce the calligraphy. The traditional broad-edged pen produces calligraphy determined by the nib angle in relation to the writing surface, whereas the copperplate style is determined by the pressure applied to the pen when writing. The more pressure applied in the copperplate style, the thicker the stroke. The hair-line strokes produced, contrasts beautifully with the thicker downward strokes.
