73: Very Light Roman

Roman letters, originating in carved inscriptions, tend to be about eight times the width of the pen stroke.  They had to be side enough to be deep enough to catch the sun.  
The alphabet here is Very Light Roman, some 16 pen widths tall.  It's challenging; the reduced weight will show up every slight tremor in your stroke. Concentrate on maintaining the Roman proportions.
