Height of d, t, and p
« on: October 25, 2021, 01:43:37 PM »
Remember that as you study Engrosser’s Script (Copperplate), you will see a wide variance in the height of ascenders, sometimes even from the same penman. While there are “rules” per se, personal preference plays a large part. In the samples below, I demonstrate these variances. The guidelines I have created indicate the d, t, and p are all at the same height. This is both based on exemplars from old texts as well as creating a simple starting point for beginners. It is not set in stone so please adjust according to your preference.
