Blackletter and Variations

Blackletter and Variations:
We will begin by grounding ourselves in a strong, basic form of gothic: Textura. Then we will, variable by variable, morph it through a series of permutations; creating variations, modernizing it and doing projects that are anything but traditional. Every session we will work with a variety of papers, writing fluids and nibs, techniques, as well as layouts and designs.
