As my outlines are getting sloppy with free practice without supervision, I am currently reviewing the basics.
I’m using the Gregg anniversary manual which describes shapes in much more detail than my DJS manual.
The Anni manual explains that R, L, K, G should be distinctly curved at one end and almost straight toward the other end.
Yet this principle seems no longer to be applied once those letters are attached to another letter.
For example compare:
where the curves are quite marked, and :
where the L looks almost perfectly symmetrical in reference to a vertical axis that would run through the middle of it.
Can I safely infer that the described “best practice” of curving the beginning of R/L and the ending of K/G is only true when those letters stand alone?
