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

Incognito Of Irony


Followers of incognito traits
the foist of myopic irony

hark a smidgen or jeremiad
balk at the fluid malaise

An inherent chide echo
timed inaction of smooth

Plead distance bad enactor
how can they be so avid?
