Blackletter – A journey through gothic letterforms.
Gothic script is definitely the calligraphic style with the strongest appeal, thanks to its strong and sharp shapes. The workshop offers a journey through this writing style, starting from the textura, mainly used for writing manuscripts, to its Renaissance evolution. The fraktur writing, characterized by a strongly decorative component with complex and generous capital letters, offers the chance to experience endless possibilities of variations that are still widely used today. We will start by studying the historical shapes, writing with the broad edge pen, and then we will re-write the letters in a more expressive way using the twist of the brush. Finally we’ll pass to the development of other possible alphabets, more personal and modern. A course for beginners, experts and those who want to deeper the study of this writing style.
