I’ve been learning some Gothic calligraphy on Udemy via Mary-Jane Roussel’s Simple Gothic Hand Calligraphy course. It’s a very good course with some ruled paper to help one practice. However, it was ruled paper for one pen nib size, with the spacing dependent on the nib size, whereas I had four nib sizes from the beautiful Pilot Parallel Pens I used to do my calligraphy (1.5 mm, 2.4 mm, 3.8mm, 6.0mm). As a result, I made my own and thought I’d shared these PDFs for anyone else who might be interested.
People make origami (Japanese paper folding) out of all kinds of paper. What you get are things in different colours, or with different patterns on them. Rarely do people make origami out of translucent paper, which may give you a little insight into how the paper folds on the inside of what you can see.

Below is the third set of seven great love songs I shared, with some short commentary for each.
