Sorry, but some of the scans didn't come out very well.
I will be getting some better pictures in the near future.
|A quotation from Emily Brontë done in Blackletter, my favorite hand.|
|A great quotation from Jean Cocteau done in three different hands: Uncial, Blackletter, and Italic.|
|A fantastic poem by one of my favorite authors, Ursula K. Le Guin, done in Blackletter with Uncial capitals.|
|A famous line from Léon Blas, both done in Uncial. The one on the right stays within the lines, while the one on the left bounces.|
|A very funny short poem by Dorothy Parker.|
|Finally, what calligrapher hasn't done a Gaelic blessing? This one is in Capitalis Rustica, a very old (and very difficult!) hand.|
