-fer-, -ver- in Anni


I’m having difficulty writing “couverture” the Anniversary (Sénécal) way. My V invariably tends to straighten up because of the reverse motion used to write the following circle. Would you have any tip to help keep a nice V/F curve followed by reverse circle and avoid getting something that looks more like J/CH (my problem at the moment)?

Thank you.

  1. The v will straighten out because of the reverse circle; you can’t avoid that. However, the key here is that the v will end directly below or slightly before the beginning of the k, whereas if it were a j it would be less slanted (the j would end close to the middle of the k). When writing this word, think of it as if you were writing a big longhand question mark, and you should get the right shape.
