The centre-justification looks weird. Aim for left and right (and especially left) justification. You ought to make your "scribal hand" look as least like a forgery as possible. To do that pay attention to a few things. The letters on the left side of the text should be well spaced, while those on the right should look like someone was trying to fit things into a space that he saw before him. Something like breathing in at the start of the line with your chest expanding to breathing out at the end of the line with your chest contracting (and if you really try to breathe out a lot, you feel the contractions almost painfully). Proportional justification will be a definite give away that it is a forgery.pmander wrote:I have looked at your post, and worked with the texts and tried to make them more easy to read and also "thinner" so they can be beside each other on my back. That means I have cut the lines in different places, trying to use logic and cutting the lines as much as where the scribe has done so.
If you see anything that looks odd or just plainly wrong in the uploaded edits, I would be glad if you let me know.
Look at your first line of your John 8:12; The fourth letter Ι seems cramped up against the Λ in front of it - spread it out a little. The supralinear stroke needs to be converted (restored) to a well-spaced Ν. Just say, you want to have 9 characters per line, squash up the last 3 or 4 a bit. Playing with that will improve the overall appearance. Perfect justification on the left - manually adjusted as best as you can on the right by squashing.
The supralinear stroke in the third line should stay as it is. If you end up with an Ν at the end of the line, like you have in line 7, you could reduce that to a supralinear stroke to the right of the text, as in the examples.
The last word of the second line of Revelations 22:5 ΚΑΙ could be abbreviated to the form of the Κ with the barb under it that is found on the 5th line. The fourth line needs the supralinear stroke restored to a Ν. The whole expansion / compression thing is reversed in that line. The supralinear stroke in the last line could be restored to a Ν also.
