Roman Caps

As promised in the last post, I have been working on studying Ismar David's style of roman caps. In the first sample, the letters have been drawn as in the earlier post. The second sample is my first attempt at writing the letters with a metal nib, Speedball #3. The third sample is a later attempt with a metal nib.

It seems I am quite out of practice after being on vacation for the holidays. I will continue to practice and post again when I have something worthy to share.

  1. It's great to see each of these samples. I can really see how the letters are constructed in the first image, and the other images show what a great job you do achieving that subtle waisting of the strokes. Really beautiful Jo!
