Albrecht Dürer, page from Unerweisung der Messung, 1525. Relating each letter to the square, Dürer worked out a construction method using a one-to-ten ratio of the heavy stroke to the height. This is the approximate proportion of the Trajan alphabet, but Dürer did not base his designs on any single source.
