Step-by-step calligraphy cadel


Calligraphy cadel H

This was done not only to attempt to articulate to other scribes who thirst to create cadels, but to myself as well. It’s a tricky thing for me to articulate, but I must say that I feel it takes a lot of concentration.

This example is simplified, exaggerated, and just complex/simple enough to allow for multiple skill levels, as well as being consistent with historic examples from the 16th century.
I hope this is helpful.
