The Idea

By studying the history of Western writing forms and book design from the Roman Empire to present time, students develop a practical understanding of an evolution that has had strong psychological, social and cultural influences on us. Handwriting, which seems to hold less and less value in our society, is an important means of communication of our emotions, humanity, intimacy and innermost energy. The courses' aim is ultimately to broaden the visual, expressive and artistic potential of writing by hand.
