Uncial Hand Calligraphy Tips : Uncial Calligraphy Tips: P

The letters P and Q relate to each other in
the fact that they consist of straight lines and round bowls. Bowl is the calligraphic
term for the part of the letter that’s round. I’m going to start with the P which is to

one, two, three. Similarly, the Q is one, two, now here I’m going straight across, and

letter stays the same. P and Q.
