Designing with striped letters

The advice in this quote is very astute.
We looked at striped letters earlier with Mesh,* # 5, January 6.  They already make a strong visual impact, but you can add extra pen strokes the same width as the narrower stripes. 

Here at left is a simple layout of the 26 letters, knit together with narrow swashes and a few wider ones.  Also, the inner space is accented with white.  

*A starting point for striped-letter designs.
