Elements of lettering – 3

12/11/2010

Here we start with the O – the most basic of the capitals, and probably the hardest both to draw and carve. Symmetry is the key here – although there are many other ways to draw an O, some of which will be recorded in future blogs. Anyhow, to get started with the classic Trajan O please refer to the illustration. (Click to enlarge).
