    NOTE TO SECOND EDITIONTHE first edition of this little book has longbeen out of print, and as there have beenmany inquiries for it from time to time I am re-issuing it, with a few alterations and additions,in the hope that it may still be found useful, notonly to Artists, but to all those Craftsmen whohave to deal with lettering in some form.
