Calligraphy Every Day 16: Upright italic

Although in the world of typography "italic" means slanted version of Roman, in the world of calligraphy it is a style with a particular body shape.  It doesn't necessarily even have to slant.  This alphabet, Upright Italic, lets you work with a letter that is straight and narrow but graceful too.  
Pay attention to the shape of the letter body by practicing in letter groups: a, c, d, e, g, q, u, y, and b, h, k, m, n, p.
