One of our homework assignments in the first class of
Reggie's Primitive to Modern was to write something in
Textura and have it "reversed" at our local copy store.
I chose the German version
of the Hail Mary prayer, first writing on graph paper to
determine line lengths for centering purposes,
then onto John Neal Bookseller's 11 x 17 practice paper,
using a Speedball C-4 nib and Chinese stick ink.
For the Italicized variation, I wrote the prayer on
Arches 90lb hot press paper, using the same nib and ink.
