I can see how the calligrapher has inferred the full letter in all these circumstances - it's a case of art over simple writing, surely? Knocks Times New Roman into a cocked hat eh? ;) ;D

Ah - the dreaming poets that sailed the Rogers...I miss them a lot  :-*

Strangely just looked up another thread entry about the Albatross on Thanksgiving day. The page shown is:

and it looks like the example of the letter 'u' given in the thread above might just be a case of too little ink on the pen...  :-\

Thanks, Randi. I had a feeling I hadn't posted that in quite the right place  ::)
