This is not a very good image but is an example of composition and spacing, achieved by excellent teaching in my very first days. It was written in the Edward Johnstone (google him) Foundational Italic style on vellum in 1958 (wow!!!) as a presentation by my wife to her church, in Exeter, Devon, when we emigrated to Australia. The church has since been demolished so I have no idea where this piece is now! I had started calligraphy, under the tuition of Ruth Mary Wood (a pupil of EJ,) about two years previously and this was my third completed piece.
It had raised, burnished 24c gold at the beginning, then Newman's Vermilion, and ground Chinese stick ink. About 12 inches long. It was photographed on a slope (to avoid reflection off the glass) on a 135 Kodachrome transparency film.
Posted just as a comment piece.
