English script, or you can say traditional western calligraphy, has been around for hundreds of years. It is one of the oldest and most respected forms of art and expression of the written word. It has been used for centuries to convey religious messages, royal decrees, and even everyday correspondence.
This style is most suitable for designs that require a more formal and elegant look, such as wedding invitations, certificates, diplomas, and other documents of importance. It is also used in logo design and typography to create a classic and timeless look.
One of the attributes is using a pointed nib pen to create a smooth, even, and balanced look. Also, unlike in the case of modern calligraphy style, the writing has a particular order and structure, with each letter written in a strict rhythm and specific width, ratio, and weight. The letters are then linked at the end to create a cohesive look.

The “thick” and “middle” styles have the same width but different angles and heights. The “thick” style is best suited for long straight vertical parts of the letter, and the “middle” style works best for curvy areas.
