In 1525, Albrecht Dürer, the well known German great artist, was publishing the so called “Underweysung der Messung mit dem Zirckel und Richtscheyt”, printed in Nuremberg. This handbook explain with numeral figures how to drawn with compasses and ruler. A large part is devoted to the drawning of Roman characters, who can be used as decorative initials.
