Caroline Minuscule

Beautiful and instructive!
I'm going to look up the Ramsey Psalter.
Thank you so much.

Nice work, as always.
I'm always interested in what nib you used. Also, how was the color applied? What size are the letters?

Ken Fraser:
This is from my archives from some years ago. I wanted to accentuate the aged look, so I wrote it with an old, blunt-edged Manuscript nib (to avoid it looking too clean cut) with Higgins Black Eternal ink. The x height was 4mm. The colour was diluted gouache. Thanks for asking.

I like this original Caroline Minuscule actually a lot more than Johnston’s Foundational Hand – I find that a bit dull and mechanical ;D … your example is very wonderful :).
