In this hands-on workshop students will focus on the fundamentals of the construction and anatomy of Roman and Italic minuscules.
During the 15th century, the Italian Humanist hand and chancery cursive became the original sources of the first Roman and Italic typefaces. Very much the same forms remain with us today, to greater and lesser extents, in many popular and classic designs. The influence of the broad edged pen has had a profound effect on type and through learning to write in these Renaissance styles students will begin to attain the deep understanding needed to draw, analyze and see letters.
