84: Plain Gothic

Revisiting yet another version of Gothic is an excuse to let me give you a very inspiring little example of how it was used in its heyday.  The manuscript page here is really small, witness to the way Plain Gothic letters accommodate crowding.  

The lettered and illuminated area is 6 centimeters square, making the letters about 2 millimeters tall.
