Blackletter Variations with Reggie Ezell


There are many variations of Blackletter (or Gothic) that have come down through the centuries. A group of these are termed Batard because of their mixed parentage, that is they are a fusion of at least two different letter in styles. The variation we will be doing in this workshop is termed Schwabacker. Students will also be introduced to a set of capitals that can be used with these lower case forms.
