I could go on and on with this series but actually I’m going to stop at this stage. Maybe some more about my theories and principles of teaching another day. I will certainly revisit why I love Italic so much, and also chat about gestural writing at some stage. I started with this after looking at Monica’s fab.work, then being interviewed by a young Italian visual comms. student who was doing her thesis and wanted to consider “contemporary British gestural calligraphers” – interesting! Anyway the 2-day series has turned into an earnest 9-day series and I must get on with my ordinary life! Also writing syllabi off the top of my head is dangerous.
