This set of deviations are pretty cool. It's interesting to note how writing has developed through time. :)

Beautiful. Isn't Gothic Cursive a Bastarda as well? The humanist script is at least 100 years older I believe. The first humanist typefaces appeared in the late 15th century, so the script must be quite a bit older.

The bastarda is a mix between textura & gothic cursive, but the bastarda is more "calligraphic" than the gothic cursive.
For the humanist script, the first apparition is 1402 (if I can trust my memory).
