Alphabet texture project

Whenever you write letters, you create a visual texture that the reader enjoys along with the meaning of the words. After all, the words text, texture, technique, and textile all come from the same linguistic root.  
Like many calligraphers, I like to experiment with abstract textures, like this sampling of repeated Roman alphabet letters.  
Roman letters, each so individualistic, create more varied textures than other, more uniform alphabets.  I and J share one pane to help the design fit into a 5 x 5 rectangle.
