Although many consider the Antiqua to be a purely typographic form, most calligraphers know better. It springs out of calligraphic letterforms, made for example by Paduan scribes such as Bartolomeo San Vito.
In order to fully understand this letterform, we must simply put it back in the pen again.
In this workshop we will move from a ‘foundational hand’ (an English carolingian manuscript letterform) to understand the underlying form, and gradually approach a fully mature Antiqua form.
Even though this isn’t a type design workshop, examples of digitization will be shown, and some technical considerations will be touched upon.
This workshop includes lectures, demonstrations, Q&A sessions and corrections of work in Slack between lessons.
