    Haha, I just realized that I had some Mahler libretto on the white board at work . I took 2 cell pic.s of that, drew an MBTIc, took a picture of that, and attached 'em here. OK, these are dry-erase board markers, so they're lame. I'll upload some real calligraphy samples later.

    I'm pretty sure it does, but I'll double check when I get home.

    I started getting into calligraphy a long time ago, but I haven't picked up the pen in years. It's fun to do.

    It does. The full title is the art of calligraphy a practical guide to the skills and techniques. You get:

    imperial C(C=capitals), rustic, unical, squareC, half unical, insular majuscule and miniscule, caroline miniscule, early gothic, textura quadrata and prescisus, gothic C, Lombardic C, Bastard Secretary (yes, that's a real script), Bastard C, Batarde, Fraktur, rotunda, rotunda C, humanist miniscule, italic, humanist C, copperplate, and copperplate C. *whew* Most of them have both C and lowercase. This book delivers, man.

    Okay. Here's my attempt. I suck balls at capital letters and I wasn't writing with a guide, which I should have been. It's also with a pencil instead of a pen because my pen sucks. I see some of the mistakes and I could probably fix it, but oh well. Here's my submission.

    Anyway, I'm getting into calligraphy. Right now, just standard American calligraphy. I was wondering if any of you do calligraphy. If so, how did you pick it up, and tips do you have?

    Since that'll probably get zero to -3 responses, I thought it'd be fun to do a calligraphy challenge. The challenge will be to pen, scan, and upload the following words:

    "Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Central"

    If anyone actually tries to do this, we can have a poll at the end to select the winner. If you just want to sketch or draw or doodle, that's fine too (as long as it says the words above.

    Ready?

    ...

    GO!

    I can't believe I missed this. I love calligraphy. I'll get on it.
    I don't wanna!
