single compartment 'a' is used as the lower case graph.
in the middle of a line and on several other occasions too. The basic shape for the upper case graph.
the basic graph is elaborated in a variety of ways.
Usage: A woman
both looped and unlooped 'd' are used.
a long thick stem for unlooped 'd'.
looped 'd's with pointed lower lobes. 'd' in final position has an extended loop stroke which turns down to finish in the form of a tag.
the upper case graph.
Usage: A geyn
tailed 'g' with counter-clockwise turn on the tail.
'g' in final position with extension of the horizontal slash and final upward curl.
in this example, the tail of 'g' is much longer, turns clockwise and then continues in a horizontal line beneath the previous graphs.
'h' with looped head resting on the shoulder and long tail-stroke which turns clockwise and then loops back on itself.
upper case 'H' with extended tail-stroke which descends clockwise into the margin then loops back on itself.
modern 'r' and 'z'-shaped 'r' are used in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions.
an elaborate upper case 'R'.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
a horned secretary 's' in final position.
a very angular 8-shaped 's' is also used in final position.
upper case 'S' with otiose strokes ascending from the head and descending from the bottom of the graph.
the scribe uses a variety of 'w' graphs. Here the head is looped but the lower limbs form sharply angled 'v's.
this graph occurs in the middle of a line so one might assume that it is not the upper case graph. The curved approach to an angled head leads in to a cursive shape for a double 'v' form with single lobe to the right.
a different upper case version with angled foot at the base of the left limb.
'y' only varies in the length and curve of the tail-stroke.
