Brush-written Romans to Roman Type Forms: 

The Anatomy of Majuscules

Presented by: John Downer and Paul Herrera
Cost: $250 (Two Day Workshop)
Maximum Participants: 15
Location: Dunwoody College of Technology
The ancient Romans devised systems of proportion that are still applicable today. The flat brush was the basis of formal Roman lettering. Understanding the tool enables students to incorporate important principles in both hand lettering and type design. The first day will be devoted to brush technique and refining the letterforms. The second day will be devoted to pencil tracings and preparation of the drawings for the eventual purpose of scanning and digitizing. We will not, however, be using scanners or computers in the classroom. The exercises will be strictly analog.
This is a two day workshop.
Participants must be prepared to attend both days.
