In 1981 I started my training at central Maine Vocational technical Institute. I will never forget the lettering guides and the first exercise of the day was to fill a page with text to practice making the perfect block letters, every day.
There were no computers in the architectural department and the concept of cad, at least to us students, did not exist. I didn’t realize it at the time but I was perfecting what would soon become the lost art of hand drafting. Would one now use the acronym H.A.D.?
