LEGENDE & VARIATIONS

16th October 2021 with Janice McCleland

Legende is a typeface designed by Ernst Scneidler (1882-1956) in the 1930s. Schneidler was a typeface designer, calligrapher, illustrator and teacher who studied both architecture and art. He designed a large number of typefaces, but Legende is the one perhaps best suited to the broad-edged pen. It has been adopted as a calligraphy script and is open to a variety of adaptations. As well as the broad-edged pen, it is easily adapted to a flat brush and even a pointed pen.


We had an excellent day with Janice, it was just so nice to actually go through the process of ruling up, tweaking pen-angles, dipping into ink, and generally settling down to the focused concentration of learning a new hand.
