111 Deflated Gothic

Letters sometimes look like closed containers that have air (white space) inside and around them.  It's fun to try pumping out some of that air, to make this Deflated Gothic alphabet.  Later in the year we will try inflating some letters to make them bulge.

This comes from my book Capitals for Calligraphy, a source for dozens of pen alphabets.  And page designs.  Stay tuned for more excerpts.
