For next week, draw the full alphabet for an Old Style or Transitional typeface. It doesn’t have to be Baskerville! Although it’s fine if it is. Here’s the font-drawing assignment sheet for this project. Hand it in at the start of class.
Bring to class next week an array of calligraphy drawing tools: brush markers, calligraphy pens, brushes, etc. Bring pads of paper too, both rough and smooth. If you have large newsprint pads, that would be great. If you have samples of calligraphic hand lettering you’d like to emulate, feel free to bring in samples. Let’s play.
