The Secret History of Writing (DOCU)


Why would you want to make wrong letters? Because it’s a blast, that’s why. And because you can create black/white statements that are powerful, intriguing, and inventive. All it takes is the will to break a few rules, and a push from me. We will use an automatic pen to push and pull our 26 Latin friends into new shapes. This will be slow, deliberate work, going for maximum tension between letters and the spaces inside and between them. I have had immense fun developing this calligraphic concept, which blends influences from all the scripts I have encountered in a long career.

Please join me for the fun!
