Once you learn the basic strokes, are able to create well-formed letters, and
compose letters into words and phrases, you may begin the alteration of letter
forms based on personal taste. Extend the serifs, change the geometric
proportion of the serif to letter, or add extensive flourishes to letters to create
a letter style of your own. Once you develop a personal letter style, create
an entire alphabet, the numerals 0 through 9, and punctuation and record it as
a style sheet for later reference.
