Event description
Drawn and Built-Up Capitals: Study of works by Hermann Kilian by Yukimi Annand

About this Event

Hermann Kilian (1929 – 2004) was a German calligrapher, typographer and book designer whose work was epitomized by classical simplicity with an underlying tension within every letter. I first saw his original work in 2016 at the Klingspor Museum Offenbach, and found his works to be full of life. As I progressed in my study, his original letterforms and works became my spiritual nourishment.

To draw capital letters successfully, understanding the skeleton geometry form and the contrast of thick and thin strokes of Roman Capitals is very important. Studying the Trajan form makes your form rich. In this workshop, we will start by drawing skeleton forms to understand the form, space and balance. We will study how weights were added on the form in traditional way. Then we will analyze some of Kilian's unique letterforms and design, and learn how he drew his letters and compose his works. At the end of course, we will draw our chosen quote with unique drawn/built-up capital letters.

The technical instructions given in this workshop are designed to help you become proficient in using your tool to draw built-up capitals. I hope this study of Kilian’s works will increase your interest in drawn capitals, as well as give you fresh ideas to develop your own forms.
