Crash Course: Western Calligraphy
A working knowledge of Western calligraphy can be most helpful in speeding up one’s understanding of type design basics. This crash course will cover the two primary styles used in Western typography—roman and italics with the broad nib pen and the pointed pen. A deeper understanding of the relationships between tools and letterforms is expected by the end of the session, as well as an increased awareness of the intricacies of Latin script.
