Beautiful! I hope you don't mind it is now my desktop wallpaper. Is the Madarasz script derived from Spencerian or Copperplate?

I'm delighted that you want to use my post as desktop wallpaper.

The Madarasz hand was his variation of Roundhand which has strong Spencerian overtones. He called it "Madarasz Script". If you search for "The Madarasz Book" on the IAMPETH site you'll find several examples of this hand.

Font designer Ale Paul of Sudtipos designed a wonderful "ode to Louis Madarasz" font called Burgues Script.

Send me a PM if you would like additional information on this beautiful font.

P.S. Beautiful work Ken!

Thanks, James.

This quote by Robert Fripp is written in the style of "Madarasz Script" with an Esterbrook 357 nib and Higgins Eternal black ink on Clairefontaine paper. The angle of the writing is 47 degrees from the horizontal and the x height is 6mm.

Ken, if we were still wearing corsets, we would be fainting at the sight of these most beautiful "Madarasz Script" style!

 

Bringing beauty to words, simply amazing!

Since caliken (Ken) has chosen to remove the image(s) from this thread, it no longer makes sense to keep it pinned.

I have an opinion and I'm not afraid to use it.

Just to explain -

 

As I am no longer participating in this Forum, I have removed my images and videos as I can use some of them commercially, elsewhere.
