The art of the written form has influenced typography since the introduction of movable type in the West. To understand calligraphy is to understand the logic of letterforms. The careful construction and spacing of calligraphic forms gives discipline to mark-making. Students learn two hands the Humanist and the Italic both of which formed the basis for Renaissance typefaces. A series of practice exercises both in-class and out-of-class will provide the skills necessary to produce a limited number of finished pieces.
