I to J sampler

Here's a sampler crafted suing #inkscape showing I and J forms and the relationship between them.

I hope the forms and fonts I have selected show how a simple lengthened pen stroke for emphasis may be started the idea of a separate J letter? I've tried to contrast fonts clearly inspired by handwriting with nib pens to related more modern print fonts.

There will be another post on the related topic of how I think the top cross bar forms of upper case J in many modern fonts developed.
