I bought a new notebook and decided to have some fun with it. The Latin, “et sic itur ad astra et umbra,” translates to “and so we go to star and shadow.” image

And on the back I added some more quirky Latin. The H.M. is the common abbreviation for “His/Her Majesty” and “regina huius locus” means “queen of this place.” “Cave verbis filii mei” translates to “beware the words, my children.” The back font is uncials, while the front is my take on a wacky style I saw online. image


Some practice with the Greek alphabet in uncials. The tiny letters to the left are the lowercase. The scribbles beneath each capital are the names of each letter and their counterpart in our alphabet. I used French pronunciation marks because I am most familiar with them. They are such elegant letters… IMG_3707
