This will be an energetic variation of Carolingian. Together we will trace it’s lineage back to standard Carolingian to see how it was transformed. In this on-line course, you will learn a unique wide bodied script with a variation of body height and slant named Version # 6. This script is useful for headings, envelopes and almost any kind of splashy things you would want to create!
