The Proper Art of Writing (1655)

I stumbled upon these calligraphy examples on The Public Domain Review. They are taken from a 17th Century German book. Some of the characters are so highly decorated aren’t even recognisable anymore. 

The volumes’ full title is as extravagant as the examples it shows:  The Proper Art of Writing: a compilation of all sorts of capital or initial letters of German, Latin and Italian fonts from different masters of the noble art of writing. See more here

so I’m pulling a most-nighter this evening/morning

I just had a dream that several people I knew from theatre and this group of bros worked in my lab

we decided to play contact hockey and then the fire alarm went off.

What a strange dream for a 15-minute nap.
