Blackletter is dramatic, and let’s face it who doesn’t want a little drama now and then?! We will explore the traditional method for writing Textura, the cleanest and least round of all it’s blackletter counterparts, with an outcome of a mass of texture that is always appealing. Later in the day we will pair it up with some Fraktur capital letters, which can make even a single word look amazing.
Learn how to use the parallel pen, one of the most versatile tools around for broad edge lettering, hone your spacing analysis and techniques which will aid you in writing any other letterform, and develop the skill necessary to write a basic black-letter alphabet.
