Introduction to Italic with Marco Chioini (Part 1)

This workshop with Marco Chioini, is over the course of two Saturdays (November 23rd and 30th, 2019). It will cover both minuscules and majuscules and will address the basic rules that govern the Italic hand, so that you can continue exploring this writing style at home: from nib angles, to slopes, ductus, proportions, spacing, etc.
