Uncial


Uncial is a round majuscule hand that served as bookhand between 4th to 6th century, and was used for headings until the Middle Ages. This attractive hand is frequently used as an eye catcher today and it has widespread applications for the contemporary calligrapher.


The lessons cover analysis of 5th century Latin Uncial, pencil monoline writing and the spacing practice. This is followed by weighted forms with edged-pen, letter spacing, writing texts in different nib sizes, changing weight, and design layout. Works of framed art or manuscript book are created for the final projects.
