I have delved into the Gentle Gothics section of Colour and Curves. I need to get a 3.8mm Pilot Parallel pen. I am working with the 6.0mm. It is too thick, but I will make due until I get the smaller nib width.
Anyway, I appreciated the brief history review of Gothic/ Blackletter as well as the brush-up on ratio. I think ratio is my biggest challenge. I believe mastering ratios in muscle memory and visually will take my lettering to the next level.
