As the artist creates an image that we can see before us, the author conjures up a different kind of magical effect. Using a basic set of characters and sentences - only text that has been scraped on a piece of cardboard or on a computer monitor - the author can produce images and even whole universes in the reader's head.
Writers have many different ways of creatively creating, from the fictional to the poetic to the theatre and the script. Writers can (and should) try as many shapes as they like, or they can specialise in one. Some of the technologies and practice are shared by all types of lettermaking and we will be discussing them here.
We' ll also look at the challenge and technique that make typing in its various shapes so special. In this course you will find a number of excercises that will get your mind - and your hands - in motion.
