HALF UNCIALS (Two or five days)
Also known as Insular Majuscules. This class will focus on the beautiful half uncial script
of books such as The Book of Kells and the Lindisfarne Gospels of the 8th and 9th
centuries AD. The hand is unique – written with a flat pen angle very similar and very
likely inspired by the Greek uncial. It has a strong graphic presence and beautiful texture
on the page. This script lends itself well for designing in different languages. If we study
also the beautiful capital letter forms of these books, the class could be five days long.
