Calligraphy Italic Capitals: K-Z : Calligraphy Italics: Capital Letter U


Capital U is another letter which exactly
mimics the lower case letter, so should be somewhat familiar and easy to draw. So, two
strokes, a couple of points with the U. You want to keep this line straight until the
last bit. The second stroke is going to intersect at a place where it’s parallel of course,
but we also preserve that stem stroke, that lifting stroke. So the U has two parallel
strokes for the most part, not counting the bowl just like the lowercase. So here’s a
lower case U. So if you keep the proportions of the U, keep in mind that’s it’s not as
wide as it is tall. So we’re going to be slightly narrower, so it would fit into a parallelogram
or a rectangle with a slight forward slant. And you’ll have it.
