Mar. 19th, 2011 @ 11:03 am Calligraphy progress
Current Mood: happyhappy
As you might know, I'm doing a course-by-mail in calligraphy. Last week I sent in my first homework: two sentences in the capitalis quadrata (the square letters the Romans used on their inscriptions). Yesterday I got it back: I got a 7. I'm a bit proud: I'm not exactly known for my great handwriting or fine motor skills.

Right now, I'm working on the third alphabet, the unicaal. In the text, it said that the Libra font was based on this alphabet -- and that's one of the fonts I'll be buying next week! I might carve large 'miniatures' to use as capitals, if I want to set larger texts...

As courses go, there are only a few things more suited to be doing by mail.
In fact, I can't think of any right now.

And your fine motor skills may not be good, but you're been practicing them a lot with all the 'knutselen' these years.

Dat is al een mooi begin van de cursus. Succes en veel plezier, en ik volg graag je vorderingen.
