Belle précision du trait (sauf en haut à droite où c'est un peu tassé mais j'ai presque rien vu). Sur parchemin en plus, ça a de l'allure.

Bein en fait, comme je n'avais pas le temps de faire de brouillon, ce sont les premières lignes qui me permettent d'arranger l'espacement, du coup, ça foirotte un peu au début. :)

Wow this is amazing. I like how sharp and exotic it looks without the bottom serifs or the square shape as is common with blackletters.

This insular writing is one of my favorite writing. As you say, it doesn't look like the modern writing & the result is mystical. I love celtic & anglo-saxon stuff. :)

I never used it before but I actually find it the most attractive. It reminds me of old cyrillic writing which was uncial.

In my last work, the Grandval Bible, you can see an artificial uncial, it's uncial but I don't look like uncial.
