Come and explore the beauty and creativity of Cadel lettering. Each scribe brought their own interpretation with unique creativity. In this class, we will study the cadel lettering in Ejecutoria de Hidalguía de el Yllustre Señor Capitán Martín de Angulo Montesinos, a Spanish manuscript written in 1567 describing his and his family’s accomplishments. A cadel is a pattern which can be traced completely from one end to the other in a single line without retracing any part, and where the trace may cross itself only once at any crossing point. If you like Celtic knots, you will really enjoy these versals. Cadel patterns were first incorporated in letters by Jean Flamel, secretary to the Duc de Berry around 1409.
The first half of the class will cover cadel patterns and creating letters like the letters in the manuscript. In the second half of the class, we will use the patterns and incorporate them into letters not found in the manuscript to create a more complete exemplar. So bring your creativity and learn more about cadel lettering.
