Gothic Textura Quadrata vs Gothic Textura Prescisus vel sine Pedibus

Letters written in Gothic Textura Quadrata generally have "feet" on the base of minims, created by a horizontal ending stroke once the pen reached the baseline. Sine Pedibus indicates that the letters do not have such "feet". Gothic Textura Prescisus vel sine Pedibus is a Gothic script that appears to be woven and is very precise in strokes, and lacks feet. Gothic Textura Prescisus vel sine Pedibus also often does not reach the baseline.
