Blackletter - Textura and Contemporary Fractur was a one-day workshop on April 14, 2018, during which Yukimi Annand taught two forms of Blackletter and had participants eager for more. Yukimi brought with her a wealth of knowledge and talent. She carefully explained branching and pen angle and used an analytical approach while demonstrating the many nuances of Blackletter. In addition, Yukimi made several trips around the room giving helpful critiques and suggestions to each student. Participants left the workshop a tad tired but excited about future practice with the wonderful handouts Yukimi provided.
