178 Stiffen

This alphabet, like others this week, comes from my book, Calligraphy Alphabets Made Easy.  
Stiffen has a lot of cousins; it is a short version of Rectangular Gothic [June 13], or a squared version of Heavy Bookhand [June 18]. 

It lends itself, among many tasks, to ambigrams [see July 12, #163] since so many of its letters turn into another letter if rotated 180°: b into q, d into p, n into u, r into j, m into w.  

Preview of tomorrow's alphabet.

  1. This one has a beauty to it. I like the square-ness of it. I love the idea of playing with ambigrams with it!
