GOTHICIZED ITALIC

Among the most popular styles of calligraphy for students and professionals alike, this modern Gothic script, developed during the revival of calligraphy in the early 20th century, is a rhythmic, elegant variation on the medieval Black Letter hands. It combines the cursive qualities of Italic with the ornamental appearance of Textura and other Gothic alphabets.  In this workshop, students will study the basics of this lively and very legible minuscule script as well as variations in form, weight and size.

We will also discuss the various options for choosing appropriate capital letters, working from both traditional and more contemporary examples.

The class will also learn about the flourishing possibilities of the hand and will concentrate extensively on spacing, one of the key elements in all calligraphy.
