You might want to post this question to comp.fonts where you will find
many very knowledgable people on this subject. I once heard that Reed
(Oregon?) offers courses in Calligraphy. And then of course there is
the premiere School of Book Arts - Rochester Institute of Technology,
School of Printing Management and Sciences, Rochester, New York. Try
contacting Archie Provan, professor and Director of The Goudy Center
for Font Technology and Aesthetics. 716-475-2052
