Adolf Bernd Letters—Decorated Versals

This workshop will begin with a gentle review of color and tonal exercises in both ‘harmony’ and ‘contrast’ that are an integral part of Adolf Bernd’s letters.

We shall focus on the tonal subtlety found in Bernd’s work—with projects using natural objects as color studies (a leaf, stone, flower, etc), as Bernd himself did. There will be exercises to explore the rich reservoir of the many subtleties found in ‘neutrals’ and grays, both warm, cool and inert that will give us a more sustained sense of beauty and satisfaction in our color palettes.

With our new color skills, we shall begin our work on a simple small capital letter, to explore in a gentle and logical manner, the underlying elements inherent in these forms. This basic ‘understanding’ will serve us well as we move on to work on the more versatile versal letter—and newer options—before adding the third Adolf Bernd element, the background.
