99 Versals

These capitals, Versals, are based on a late-medieval style that was popular for the initial letters of sung verses.  They can be colored bright red or blue, and were sometimes filled with ornament and scenes, as we will see now and then during the year.  
Um, I've had further thoughts about that pen angle: because the pen is so narrow compared to the height of the letter, left-handers could just as well hold it flat at 0° or even towards -20°.  And--my usual failing--the letters seem to lean a little.  Don't do that.
