Neuland is a German typeface that was designed in 1923 by type designer, Rudolf Koch. It was made by carving the type directly into metal. Though it was never intended to be written by hand, lettering artists love writing it because the letters are so striking and playful. Neuland can be just the right style for a bold statement. In this workshop we will explore this lettering style by writing them, drawing them, and painting them. This is a great workshop for enjoying how letters change when made three different ways.
