How much have you ever wrestled with the least used of the classic Roman hands? It's so eccentric and the one that's farthest outside the Roman writing system. But its eccentricities offer us the most exciting chance to surprise ourselves and to create something unique when it does get mixed with classic hands and contemporary techniques. We will embrace and mine the traditional approach, but jettison the past for the new when it suits us. New letters from the oldest ones! A new millennia of curves that you throw to yourself when looking for something unexpected. Several brand-new full alphabets in Rustic style were designed for this class and are included in the bound workbooks made for each participant.

The perfect complement to Rustics are Uncials. Again, I have loads of modern Uncial variations stacked up in your fat workbooks that use both traditional and modern techniques of writing — to transform what you THINK is Uncial into something decidedly more contemporary.

So let’s return to those thrilling days of yesteryear and use these millenials-old hands with 21st century attitude for a whole new look for your writing.
