Day 1: “The sooner you learn to criticise your own efforts and to correct them the sooner you will learn to write beautifully. You should, therefore, begin this day to find your weak points, and then eradicate them by diligent practice. Remember that it is only systematic, enthusiastic, properly directed practice that amounts to much. 
Cultivate the ability to make a uniformly light, strong, easy appearing line. We say easy “appearing” line so that you may know that we do not mean that it should be made without effort. For no matter how easy exercises appear after they are made, they usually take all the attention one can give them to make them fairly accurate.”

When I started in calligraphy, my teacher said to me about the simplicity “Practice the same word over and over again until you write in already in your brain before you write it by your hand. And if you cannot write a word simple, you are not good enough. Get a lot of flourishing into a page seems much easier than write a single word, because flourishing hides your fault while a word tells everything about your real skill. Letters are the heart of calligraphy, don’t hesitate to face your bad. Keep your practice papers, do it everyday and make a throw back to what you did. You may not be good in short time but I know you will get better day by day. That’s what I want you to learn, from your own improvement.” #huyhoangdao #calligraphy #penmanship

The Vergilius Augusteus is a manuscript from late antiquity, containing the works of the Roman author Virgil, written probably around the 4th century. The Augusteus is not illuminated but has decorated initial letters at the top of each page. These letters do not mark divisions of the text, but rather are used at the beginning of whatever line happened to fall at the top of the page. These decorated initials are the earliest surviving such initials. Only seven leaves of the manuscript survives, four of which are in the Vatican Library (MS 3256), and the remaining three in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Lat. fol. 416). The leaves contain fragments of Virgil’s Georgics and the Aeneid. The fragments are written in Roman square capitals, which shows that square capitals were used in handwriting and not only for stone inscriptions. Due to its great age, it was originally believed that the manuscript was written in the time of Roman emperor Caesar Augustus, hence its name. In the later Middle Ages the manuscript was kept in the abbey of St. Denis in Paris.
