Workshop - 'Civilité, the script' with Susan Moor.
Saturday 17 February

Sunderland University, 4th Floor, Business School,
St Peter's Campus, SR6 0DD.

In the early 1970s, the great German calligrapher Herman Zapf designed the font Civilité. He based it on a calligraphic hand written with an edged pen. We will be working from the written script which is unlike any other you’ve ever tried: a touch of Carolingian with a hint of gothic creating typically elegant Zapf lettering.

Please bring your usual materials including Mitchell size 2 and 2.5 nibs or Brause equivalent. I will have some of both for sale. - Susan Moor
