Very nicely done.

 

Thanks for sharing.


Yours,

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Beautiful texture of the text, can you post higher resolution photo (or scan) of a single page, I would like to see your cursive italics up close...

 

I understand there were limitations imposed by size of notebook and amount of text... In my opinion the whole work would benefit from slightly larger page and more white space on the bottom of left page (I know, I'm being picky).

 

All in all, I hope my handwriting will raise to the level of visual attractiveness of yours in a few months (or years).

Peekay, this is lovely. I really enjoy your take on the minuscule j, y, and f. How are you keeping your line spacing and x height so consistent?

Lovely handwriting.  What pen and ink did you use?

How did you keep your lines so straight without guidelines? Or did you use them under the pages with a light box?

And yes, please share what kind of pen, what ink, and what paper you wrote on.
