We were to consider the lettering used in the St John's Bible project and to analyse the script which is a real mix of styles when looked at closely. Elements of italic, gothic, bastarda and foundational hands all appear. To write this script very small, only 2 nib widths in height, was the aim but to approach that end in stages reducing the size of your writing as you progressed.
Jilly said that she found it a very useful to script to use in her own projects and showed us a remembrance card she had produced for a client with an illustration of a poppy and a verse in the bible script.
