Fancy writing a-z
Letter Format it's to do with writing a business letter, you have got two principal Styles to choose from.
Aesthetic fonts copy and paste
Cheat: copy the example on the 'Decorated Letters' page. Apologies if you are. Make sure it has a rather larger bow at the top than a 'B', though. If you push the pen nib-first, then the patron demon of bad writing, Titivillus, will come spluttering out and haunt your desk. Oh very well — moving on Here's an 'Xample': I've not put in all those bitty little 1, 2, 3 arrows to show stroke direction, as I expect by now you can see how things should go. Gothic writing: majuscule gothic letters A-Z This alphabet is written around six nib-widths high. A formal writing or is a sort of business. The font contains many additional characters including Greek and Cyrillic letters.
And then 'Libra' of course also means the Balance or Scales in astrology; and gives us the words 'equilibrium' equal balanceto 'deliberate' weigh up, balance out in one's thoughts and 'library' place where the unbalanced hang out And here we are finally at the 'Z' of these majuscule gothic letters A-Z!
I wonder if there ANY font types which has some or all of the accented letters? Here's an 'Xample': I've not put in all those bitty little 1, 2, 3 arrows to show stroke direction, as I expect by now you can see how things should go.
Any suggestions? I do think there are quite a few interesting similarities between gothic architecture and gothic writing. To tackle a hackle on gothic letters: as you can see, the idea is to place your nib at its usual degree angle so that the right corner of the nib is just barely touching the back of the letter. Aha, here's an interesting tidbit. As with 'L' and 'T', don't get carried away by the curves on those horizontals. The tail is of course drawn with the corner of the nib; I've swaggeringly shown the lozenge on the tail as part of the same stroke, but it would make sense to take the pen off after the hairline and then go back to do the lozenge. You can now write 'Happy Birthday' in gothic writing. Shake out your writing hand and give it a bit of a massage. Done 'H'? The smooth, narrow join then introduces a more graceful forward-running flourish. As you can see, a gothic 'J' is considerably more flourished than 'I'. I wonder if there ANY font types which has some or all of the accented letters? So keep your eyes open for more examples of capital gothic letters A-Z or even single letters fonts, signs, titles, manuscript facsimiles etc.
If your is typed by somebody else, the typist's initials possibly be contained just two traces underneath the signature block. That 'L' stood for the Latin word 'librae', meaning 'unit of weight'. Yes, that is modern — for gothic writing, anyway.
As always, thanks. There are several techniques to close a company letter. Partly, it's because gothic capitals derive somewhat from uncial letters and later versals, which are extremely round. The only possible sticky patch is deciding how to position the second 'crescent moon'. Be sure to begin and end the diagonal middle section below the top-line and above the base-line, so that you have space for a graceful transition into the head and foot of the letter. Here we go again: 'N', you will be happy to know, is nothing more complex than a hatless 'H'. Then you can go back to that point and draw up from it and to the right for another slight curve into the horizontal. I blame my exemplar. Aha, here's an interesting tidbit.
Thank you. Build up a collection. Actually, I think this 'A' is a bit sissy.
It spells zfnii plus that fancy thing that stands for the h. Shake out your writing hand and give it a bit of a massage.
