Online Core: From Quill to Punch
The first printers in western Europe relied on the manuscripts of the era for inspiration when constructing their typefaces and laying out their texts. In this four-day workshop, we will examine the calligraphic influences on the typefaces of the Incunabula Era. Students will learn how to use a chisel-edged pen to replicate both the Humanist minuscule and Chancery cursive scripts while analyzing the relationships with the early Italian typefaces each script spawned.
Note: This workshop is only open to students enrolled in the Type West Certificate Program in Type Design..
