Historical Scripts - Roman Capitals

Roman Capitals are the best known Roman letterform. They were developed from the first century AD for important inscriptions. Roman capitals were written with a broad edged brush and then carved. They still have a lovely classical beauty.

Roman Capitals are generally used for important titles, headings and signs. They are also used combined with other hands.
