Calligraphic styles

Erica McPhee:
That is as good as it gets right there! Outstanding Ken!  :)

Ken Fraser:
Thanks, Erica :)

@Ken Fraser - Last year I read a compelling article about scribal choices of the secretary "a" vs the two-compartment "a" that is native to anglicana formata (the Ellesmere scribe uses both within the same manuscript!). So upon seeing all of your blackletter variations here, I was wondering how you personally (as a modern scribe) choose which to use.
--yours, K

Ken Fraser:
to K-2

Regarding the two forms of a - I have no particular preference and use either, depending on the content. I find that there is great variation in Blackletter scripts.
