No surprise, now these toxic bullies from tech.lgbt are trying to have private conversations with me, which I of course indulge, and then quote wha...

I really want to learn the script used in the harry potter Hogwarts acceptance letter.

Playing with the archaic long-s style.

1 is the modern form,

2 would be the form from 18th century and before,

3 is replacing all styles of s with the long-s

Hmmm... I am considering if I want to start using the archaic long-s in my copperplate writing... Let me try to do an example and see how I like it...

My reattempt at the Aleister Crowley quote. A few notable mistakes but considering i haven't practiced in months id say its a lot better than i expected. I clearly need to get back t practicing though as the writing looks a bit strained.

God damnit. I got half way through writing this long quote and someone distracted me and i screwed up. I hate when this happens!!! It was looking pretty nice to... Oh well gonna start over.

I have switched the style on my lowercase k and with that suddenly my (Italian Hand variant) finally looks nice. No matter what i did i never could get the style of the k to look right using its normal form.

I found my first attempt at doing a caroligian script from years ago. The words at the time were just random unrelated practice words, i wasnt even trying to form a sentence. Funnily enough it turns out to be rather relevant and true anyway these many years later.

Just did a rather intense repair job on 80 some year old fountain pen with adjustable nib. I can probably get close to 1k now for this thing if i ever wanted to sell.

I figured soldering the little tabs on might work better than glue... this is my 4th try but its working.
