Workshop: Historical Review—Blackletter

For many years Myrna Rosen has been a student of the historic evolution of the Roman (Latin) alphabet and wants to share some of that knowledge with the Guild.

The next session of Myrna’s historical review will address Blackletter. The session will begin with an overview of the various hands, discussion and then hands-on work. If you haven’t played with this hand for a long time or haven’t had any prior experience, this is the perfect opportunity to get a start before Julian Waters’ in-depth blackletter workshops in April and May.
