January 2022 - Rotunda with Peter Halliday

What a lovely day we had with Peter Halliday, learning Rotunda.  Very like Gothic, but much more reader-friendly with a more rounded appearance. Peter was very gentle with us - whilst focusing on script analysis as a group, and drawing our attention to the pen angle, x-height, size etc,etc, he let us loose without making us do miles and miles of alphabet practice.  Yippee!   And we had a few twiddly initial letter decorations, too! You know the sort of thing.  (To complete the day I had noodles for tea, inspired by the margin decoration, hahaha!).  At the end of the day, Peter showed us a Kelmscott facsimile page which used the Rotunda hand printed from blocks.  Just to prove that it was something easily readable!  So, thankyou Peter!  A cracking day.
