Donald Jackson’s hand in the Saint John’s Bible is a new variation on several old, well-loved hands. When the various elements of each are put together, they make an extremely pleasing, but difficult hand to write.
In this workshop we will study and de-construct the lower case and upper-case letters of the primary text body which Jackson created especially for the St. John’s Bible. We will then work to learn the ductus and will write it on graph paper at a larger size for ease of learning. Finally, we will try writing on good quality paper.
I will also show you how to step it down to make the lettering smaller.
Handouts – please bring the handouts you received at the Guild meeting. Extra copies will be available.
Paper – Please pre-line at least one sheet of graph paper and one sheet of good quality paper.
