Italic Hand Calligraphy: More Lowercase Letters : Italic Hand Calligraphy: Lowercase “y” & “j”


Now we’ll go on with two letters that use
the descenders space. The letter y. Now I’m going to make a y that looks like a u. So
the first stroke very much like the u. The second stroke down into the descenders space
and then a hook, similar to the hook that we put on, almost identical to the hook we
put on the g. So one; two; three. One; two; three. Now the letter j is going to use a
descenders space but in a different way. The letter j and the letter y used to be the same
letter. So they were written in a similar way and the only distinguishing feature was
one got dotted and the other one didn’t. So our j actually started out as an i and the
italic j keeps that and the way that the italic j resembles the i is it’s pretty straight
and it only has just a very minimal stroke at the bottom. So were starting in the x height
and going down and as we move the pen in this direction, as we move it this way, it tapers.
