161.—Venetian Gothic Capitals. 15th Century. more
Any of the minuscule forms of Blackletter which have been illustrated may be used with the Gothic capitals of figures 165 – 5, 166, 177, 179, 185, 188-9; or with such Uncial capitals as are illustrated in 155 to 162; care being taken, of course, that these capitals are made to agree in style and weight with the small letters chosen. Although Uncial capitals are historically more closely allied with the Round Gothic, we have abundant precedent for their use with the minuscule Blackletter in many of the best medieval specimens.
When the Gothic Uncial capitals were cut in stone and marble there was naturally a corresponding change in character, as is shown in the Italian examples illustrated in 160 and 161. These examples, which are reproduced from rubbings, exhibit the characteristic stone cut forms very clearly. (p. 139)
Note: The size given does not inclue the captions, but rather gives a rough idea of the full extent of the letters.
I have not split these letters into individual images, although I could do so on request. The original scan was at higher resolution than the largest image here, of course. It is unusual to see such a complete alphabet, although I am not sure if the V and W are authentic.
