Event description

Description

This class meets on Saturday/Sunday: April 21 & 22, 2018
10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Fraktur is an eclectic genre of blackletter forms that was used widely both in calligraphy and in type beginning in the 16th century. It remained prevalent in German-speaking countries until 1941, when it was phased out by the Third Reich. Like all blackletter hands Fraktur is characterized by a bold and dense texture, though it is more decorative and less rigid than its close relative, Textura. In this workshop we will learn a basic fraktur alphabet, focusing on spacing, rhythm, and texture. We will then explore how these expressive fraktur forms lend themselves to modification and personalization.
