Hi,
Im trying to find a good combination for hebrew and english,
That is one of my tries, both hands are far from perfect but im working on it.
the italic look heavier because the line i use is 6mm and the pen i used is manuscript for lefties nib 2B, and wanted to match to the hebrew which in its basis have a bit more darker letters then english..
the hebrew is called sephardic script and its written in 60 pen angle and in some case it goes to 75 and 80
to narrow some strokes in darker letters, i write the hebrew with the paper perpendicular to me because of the left hand issues.

An uncial variation could be appropriate, especially for something like this that is a short, serious quotation. For a longer text, or something less formal, a variation on Johnston's Foundational Hand or a modernization of Carolingian could work very nicely.

Hey, thanks
the uncial look pretty close to what im looking for, for some reason, i overlooked this hand.
your other suggestion could be great for other hebrew scripts.

Thanks again.
