Finding Inspiration in Non-Latin Scripts, Part 1


Come with me to a faraway land! I want to show you one of the most beautiful and intriguing scripts ever created: early Arabic Kufic. This calligraphy is as bold as modern sculpture and abstract painting. Think Calder. Think Motherwell. By studying these concise, dramatic letters, we can learn a lot about letterform, counterspace, weight and legibility. These sessions are great for anyone interested in striking out into new territory. Even better for logo designers, painters and those hoping to develop new and more personal styles of writing. Part 1 and Part 2 together form a very good introduction to my way of teaching calligraphy. Validity: 180 days
