Excerpt from A Textbook on Show-Card Writing: International Correspondence Schools, Scranton, Pa; Show-Card Writing, Show-Card Design and Ornament, Letter Formation The present volume will undoubtedly fill a long-felt want for a full and exhaustive treatment of the subject of Show-Card Writing. The text is clear and comprehensive and the subject is treated in such a manner that it can not only be readily understood by beginners but can also be consulted as a work of reference by experts. We are not aware of any previous attempt to prepare a work of this kind. In addition to the text matter proper, there are included in the Course fifteen Drawing Plates, each of which the student is expected to send to the Schools for corrections, suggestions, and criticisms. To avoid the use of a portfolio two sets of plates have been made - one to be used for printing the plates sent to students as they progress in their studies and the other for printing the reduced copies in this volume. It will be noticed that these plates have been inserted in their proper places on guards, thus permitting them to be opened flat without extending beyond the edges of the volume. To those who specialize in original designing, the present work will be found extremely fertile in suggestion; to all classes of card writers, it will prove valuable as a convenient work of ready reference. The index is full and simply arranged, enabling any one to find any style or form of letter with the least possible delay or difficulty. The work has been printed throughout on carefully selected, extra heavy, coated book paper; the illustrations accompanying the text are profuse, clear in detail, and have been prepared and executed at great expense; the colored plates are highly artistic and very finely finished products of the printers' skill.
