Back in the 1980s, when I first worked in the comics industry, I really wanted one of these. I quite enjoyed hand-lettering and would spend ages with a ruler and pencil ruling up lettering guidelines. Problem was, the guidelines you get with a ruler are never quite even, so I'd get terrible results.

The Ames guide is used with a ruler and pencil as well - but here you put the pencil point in the hole on the Ames guide and using the ruler as a guiderail, draw the Ames guide across the paper to draw the guidelines. Perfectly even guidelines.

Nowadays, lettering is done by scanning examples of your lettering onto a computer then using something like Fontographer to build a digital font of your own hand lettering (I cover the process in my book "How to Draw and Sell Comic Strips").

But with this Ames guide, I've satisfied a thirty year old ambition ... Happy now.

I am in to researching my family history and have found that my Tree drawing is getting larger and wider. With this small instrument I am able to very neatly condense details and therefore make the tree much more manageable without comprimising it['s reading and spacual effect. I would not have known about such an instrument if it wasn't for searching Amazon for drawing aids.

This would be a very good if the disc did not rotate so freely making it difficult to drawer a straight line. This totally ruins the use of this tool/instrument

With computer lettering taking over this aspect of industry, it wont hurt to retain
old lettering skill, which you will need to create your own comic fonts.
