February 2nd – 4th with Gemma Black
Explore contemporary Versal forms starting with Irene Wellington and others moving into a freer structure. Taking the basic Versal construction we will build on that to create vivacious forms that live and breathe on the page.
February 5th & 6th with Gemma Black
Our prime specimen will be the Trajan Inscription from the base of Emperor Trajan’s Column in the Roman Forum. Its geometric balance, beauty and perfection, is the pinnacle of the evolution and development of lettering as we know it.
