Thank you, Mike

Like most of us, I've had a rather strange year. but I'm still here and in work.

I've more or less abandoned Instagram as it appears to have changed its policies.

I hope that everything is good at your end and It's good to see that you've maintained your lively informative contributions  here. You are a real asset to the Flourish Forum.

Wow!  This really beautifully demonstrates the formal relationship between Cancelleresca and Copperplate!

@Ken Fraser - would you mind terribly if I showed this image to my paleography students when we move into discussion of the formata vs. corsiva versions, and how the corsiva anticipates the later Copperplate styles?

I would be so grateful, and would credit you of course (it would also be a fun way to discuss professional citational protocols for digitally reproduced images).

--yours truly, K
