Historical note:

Whilst the origins of Rustic Capitals (Capitales Rusticæ) probably predate Written Square Capitals (Quadrata), both hands were mostly in contemporaneous use from the early centuries A.D.. If used for whole documents then it was usually written without wordspacing or punctuation; by the medieval period, its use was restricted to displayed matter. The subtle, sigmoid curves of the oblique strokes have a more calligraphic appearance than quadrata. Note the letters B and F rise above the line.
