187 Inclined Gothic

These penguins guide the beginner through Gothic in my basic book Learn Calligraphy.  Long ago I began to see the resemblance between Gothic letters and groups of stiff, black-coated penguins.   Now I can't un-see it.  

While Gothic calligraphy is usually upright, some of it does lean forward.  I've named this alphabet Inclined Gothic, giving your ears the opportunity to hear it also as "inklined".  Or not, if you don't like puns.
