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.
