What you'll learn:

Perfect for titles and stunning name plates, Blackletter commands attention and oozes sophistication. Learn the letterforms with a broad nib or parallel pen or draw them to fill with paint.

This course will cover the upper and lowercase letterforms with variations. Both beginners to Blackletter and improvers are welcome!
