Foundation Script on a slight slope.



Another version. Formal Italic, this time.

I do like that slanted foundation. I find it hard to write slanted letters, so I might try that for some practice.

Interesting "w" shape. Came from an historical example?

Gorgeous work, as usual. Amazing spacing and consistency, again, as usual.

I also like the little tails on the "y".

For some reason, though, probably just not used to them, the "w" kept interrupting my visual flow through the words. My eye kept jumping to them, especially to the "work" toward the end of the middle line. Amazing how your eye can be brought so forcefully to one spot.

Always love seeing your work.
