Two 3-day workshops focussing on South Asian and Arabic scripts combine lecture segments and practical exercises with a unique opportunity to handle rare primary sources from the collections of the Museum Plantin-Moretus and the Non-Latin Type Collection, University of Reading.
This workshop is designed to enable participants to develop an informed analytical view of multi-script types and their use in multi-lingual publications for print and screen.
Following on from tailored lettering and design exercises, practical application will range from letterpress printing to working with current word-processing and graphic design software.
