    That looks good Mike! Thanks for Playing!

    I'm glad to have the opportunity to help out with these projects and give back to the Talkgraphics community, and like Bill I have been learning a few things along the way too!

    And now back to the play! Who's next?

    Beautiful font, fantastic job ... well done all!

    Thought I'd have a quick go at an illuminated letter.

    Regards

    Excellent work Su. The illumination looks as though you could feel it.

    May I ask where the latin text came from? It looks vaguely familiar, but it has been almost 50 years since I studied Latin.

    Su was that letter put together using the Celebrated Burgeon Ornaments font behind the letter F? Looks like it to me. Good job, I like it a lot.

    Never give up. You will never fail, you'll just find a whole lot of ways that don't work.

    That is beautiful Su! Thanks for playing!

    I'd like to see some more font plays here! Surely these beautiful ornaments must have inspired a few ideas!

    Now that I have sent the Round Head file to Gary to review I will start on a font play, but after a good night of sleep.

    I believe the text is Lorem Ipsum available here: http://www.lipsum.com/ It is used as a text filler.

    Hi astrosci, it is actually translatable Latin and not the false Lorem Ipsum text.
