My First Italic Script Scroll
|My first italic script scroll lettering.|
I have a new script I’ve done on my current scroll. It’s fun but confusing because it doesn’t seem to fit the common calligraphy rules. Sometimes you even push the pen nib, because it’s somewhat cursive. It’s italic, a late SCA period script.
- a distinctive ‘lozenge’ shape to the body of letters a, b, d, g etc
- elegant, narrow branching strokes forming the shoulders of letters such as b, h, m, n, p etc
- quite long ascenders and descenders
- usually a slight slant to the right
