Workshop Description

The class provides an introduction to Italic theory with the practice of a particular Italic form. We will study structure, rhythm and fluency.

 

Be introduced to a clear and acute analysis of italic, which neatly encompasses a wide range of variations. The form we'll practice is a less common Italic with high-sprung, symmetric arches. Denis busts common myths with a clear explanation and a dash of humour thrown in.

 

Experience a grounding in letterform that many scribes lack. Learn how to recognise common problems and avoid inconsistencies. Denis' analysis helps students recognise the common mistakes. Over time, applying this analysis will help you avoid them. Pen manipulation, and dynamics of acceleration/deceleration, will also be introduced to refine forms.

 

*This workshop is open to all students and recording will be available after class for 30 days via Zoom *
