Sanvito Capitals

We were very lucky having Gaynor Goffe to teach us Sanvito capitals, as no-one could do his letters better justice.  These capitals look like pen-written Romans but there’s more to them and they have an unparalleled subtle beauty. Gaynor started the day with the historical context of Sanvito capitals, but followed on fairly quickly with an easier, more modern style suited to the broad nib and which still looked very elegant.  She demonstrated the multiple pen angles used for each letter, and gave each of us individual tuition on the aspects we found  difficult.  Many thanks for this workshop, Gaynor.
