The hand lettering “A” is special because it is the first letter in the alphabet. The lowercase letter looks very similar in both block and hand lettering. In printed texts and in many digital fonts, there is also an alternative variant.
- In brushlettering, the lowercase “A” is relatively easy to learn because it consists of only an oval and a downstroke.
- The capital lettering “A” also offers different styles. The connection to the next letter can be made via the last downstroke, via the cross stroke or a loop.
