I have an old book entitled "Lettering Tips for artists, graphic designers
and calligraphers" by Bill Gray which is very good.

The most basic tip is to keep your pen nib at a consistent angle, about
30 degrees, and to also to make the spacing ( between letters, words
and lines) look consistent and equal.

I remember having come across a very good tutorial on calligraphy. I searched for it but couldn't find it. Will give you the site address as soon as i find it.
