Gothic

Gothic THS - Frame 4
Gothic L - Frame 6
If I told you "five pens widths for ascenders and  two additional pens width for descenders" would you know that I was describing how to make the heavy, ornate lettering, known Gothic, created in the 4th century for the purpose of translating the Christian Bible? Thanks to the talents of Chesney Young of Squigglefly, you need not equip yourself with a slide rule to determine how many pen widths you should be using to form a Gothic letter. Squigglefly's new releases contained nine styles of the alphabet and a set of twenty frames.





This week Squigglefly's Challenge is to use circles and is being hosted by Vicki's team. Visit both teams so you can see the various alphabets and frames available.  I'll be back tomorrow with more Gothic.
