My next workshop at San Francisco Center for the Book is Modern Versals. We design and make a modern illuminated letter! Beginners to advanced students will explore historical models, study the anatomy of the built-up or drawn letter through models of contemporary English Versals and others, and let a new letterform emerge organically. Contemporary, rough, elegant, or wacky, your letter will have personal impact. Discover the deep potential of the single letterform while discussing design, color, stroke order, spacing, interval, white space, edges, penholds, and everything new that occurs in the process!
Line, shape, form, enclosure, texture, and color…in that order.
