Calligraphy Every Day 32: Fat Unc

I love this alphabet, with its heavy letter bodies and long ascenders.  Fat Unc stands for Uncial, a calligraphy term that relates to "inch," not uncle. 
Note Celtic kinds of letter shapes for G and M and N and T.  You can add extra flavor with the long S and the rune-like Y.  Letters are 2 1/2 pen widths tall.
