Another Angle: This photo shows me doing calligraphy with the quill again. During the course of writing, it was sometimes necessary to abbreviate words in order to make them fit the designated spaces. I used the abbreviation system found in Praeces Piae, a 15th-century French Book of Hours in Willamette University’s rare book vault. Some examples are detailed below.

For ‘pyramidum’ (omit final ‘-m’):
For ‘non’ (omit final ‘-n’)
For ‘temporum’ (omit final ‘-um’)
For ‘usque’ (omit final ‘-ue’)
For ‘postera’ (omit internal ‘-oste-’)
