|Don't letter too slowly or press down too hard, to keep your letter texture ragged along the edges.|
There are many ways to suggest that calligraphy letters are Old. In this alphabet, I used a simple calligraphy marker, Sanford 2.5 mm, to write on 300 pound watercolor paper. "Cold-press" paper has a very rough surface, which evokes the early technology of type, presses, and paper in colonial America.
I like the way sepia ink looks in the title. Look for Old caps a week from now.
