uncials & hybrids
Welcome to a three day summer school packed with demos, talks and contents!
The Uncial script is round, friendly and soft in appearance. Its theory is easy to understand, and it is a little easier to master than the Roman capitals it grew out of. There are many ways of modernising it, and I will demonstrate how to bring greater subtlety and life to the strokes.
We can also let it influence both our majuscules and our minuscules; it lends itself very well to the creation of hybrid shapes.
Skill at drawing letters will bridge the gap between the calligraphic and the typographic letter, but will also let us branch out into signwriting and applied lettering of all kinds. I will do a short session on drawing letters with a pencil at the end of the summer school.
