When deciding which style of script to write e,g.  Copperplate (English Roundhand) or Spencerian it's important to consider this aspect which is often overlooked. At the same x height, Spencerian takes up more than twice the space horizontally.
In conclusion, if you want to save paper, don't write in Spencerian.  ;D

Broad Edge Pen Calligraphy / Cataneo
« on: February 19, 2021, 06:31:23 AM »
The reputation of the 16th century calligrapher Bennardino Cataneo is based on a single manuscript book of twenty pages. The superb quality of his minuscule (x height 2mm) writing sufficed to establish his reputation in the world of calligraphic masters.
 
I have written this in his cancellaresca corsiva style of formal italic, but I've made no attempt to simulate his immaculate, minuscule writing!

"An Italic Copybook - The Cataneo Manuscript" by Stephen Harvard is published by Taplinger Publishing Company (a Pentalic Book)
