DAY 3 - 2023: Path
« on: October 03, 2023, 05:09:30 PM »
A little something different today--Spencerian, yes, but casual, without guidelines, with uncorrected mistakes, as in when you might dash off a note to a friend or make a grocery list.

@Lucie Y - you have really leveled up! such a precise, crisp italic.

The labyrinth in the capital P is from Chartres cathedral. The calligraphic style is a proto-Gothic minuscule of the same vintage as the labyrinth.

@K-2
Lovely.
I'm curious--what size are these letters?

@AnasaziWrites  your Spencerian is so pleasing to look at! I like that you have left plenty of space between the lines, it feels really balanced.

@K2 thank you for the encouragement, I have been working hard!
I love your entries and the architectural references. I also would like to know how big those letters are IRL.

Oh crÍpe!
