Formal Text example

Historical note:

In standard use throughout northern Europe from 1200, 'text' hands (so called because of the resemblance of a page written in this style to a woven pattern or textus) replaced the thinner, curved cursive hands; they arose from the use of broader pens, producing heavy strokes and acute angles. This is a particularly decorative text hand, dating from the sixteenth century.
