A gift for a beloved teacher years ago. It uses Blackletter and my new favorite nib, one with two tips, creating parallel lines


A little practice with cursive and blackletter  caps using my new handmade quills. It is my favorite Shakespeare sonnet, 116 (CXVI in Roman numerals).

The most common euphemisms Homer uses when describing the death of a warrior in The Iliad, done in uncials; the dying Achilles in the corner is based on the illustrations of Willy Pogany for a children’s book on the Trojan War.
