Monumental capitals might be 8 to 10 nib-widths high. These are 7.                         Pen angle 30 degrees except for diagonals – 45 degrees, and legs of N, almost upright pen. Capitals in body text are better kept to perhaps half again as high as the minuscules. Widths of Roman capitals vary from 1 nib width – “I”, to half a square – “E”,  3/4 – “G”, 1 square “O”, to one and a half squares -“W”.
