Some interesting lettering

There is some interesting lettering in the first image.

Here are some more images from the same manuscript from which that image came.

The image labelled Lion shows lettering well.

Please click on an image for an image to become displayed alone on a page, then please click on that image to enlarge it.

Is there a font like this lettering?

There are a few fonts which emulate this style of writing. Some names (alphabetically):

Arts & Letters Corporation/Scribe Normal.ttf
Bay Animation/Calli109 Normal.ttf
Bitstream BT/Calligraphic421BT-RomanB.otf
Dover Publications-Dan X Solo/Carnet.ttf
HypoTypo/Codex Aged.ttf
Jupiter Images Corp/JI-Plages.ttf
Lucina 'Aged'.ttf
Meade, Graham/GemFonts/Stiltedman.otf

Also interesting are the gothic paragraph initials. That also has probably been done since.

He has done a bunch... I'm aware of well over 2,000!
