Hello everyone. I saw a post of E. W. Bloser's Madarasz letter and it fascinated me. So I tried to find some reference materials. I found ¨Lessons in Ornamental Penmanship by Parker Zaner Bloser. On page 4, Study of Forms, sample characters can be found. I am not exactly sure if this is the exact forms used by Bloser on his famous letter, but I think it is close. Anyway, the sample form has main slant guides plotted to indicate the width of each letter, and I thought I really need this. However, I do not know the distance between the slants. It only says 50 degrees for the main slant and 25 degrees for the connective slant. So I tried to plot this in Inkscape and I got this (see attachment). Given a x-height, I copied the lines then rotate it 50 degrees (red lines). This formed the rhombus grids. I then plot some line along the longer diagonals (blue lines) and these line measured exactly 25 degrees. My question is, did I get the distance of the main slant right? I have problems controlling the width of my characters and I thought plotting Main Slant Guides will help me. I will appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
