Font designer Ale Paul of Sudtipos designed a wonderful "ode to Louis Madarasz" font called Burgues Script.I'm delighted that you want to use my post as desktop wallpaper.
Beautiful! I hope you don't mind it is now my desktop wallpaper. Is the Madarasz script derived from Spencerian or Copperplate?
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.
Send me a PM if you would like additional information on this beautiful font.
P.S. Beautiful work Ken!

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.
