Uncial Calligraphy Basics : Uncial Calligraphy: Recap of Key Letters


Alright! We’ve finished what I consider to
be the key letters of the Uncial hand. So, now it’s time to look at them as a group or
a set and see how they relate to each other. So, we’ve pretty much covered the round letters.
So, we have O, A, C, E, G, and I. Now I’d like you to look, particularly, at the first
set O, A, C, E, G and see how they relate to each other and I want you to try to achieve
a sort of consistent pattern of width and weight for these letters, so that they all
occupy about the same round space. Of course, the I won’t occupy that same round space,
but we want to relate the I to the spine of the A or the spine of the G.
