Don't Forget: Drawn Lettering with Peter Bain: A Two-day Workshop in Typography

Attention Guild members!!

Seats are still available for this wonderful workshop!

The Southeast Guild of Book Workers is pleased to announce a workshop
in Columbus, Mississippi.

Drawn Lettering with Peter Bain: A Two-day Workshop in Typography

Saturday, September 17, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday, September 18, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

$75 for guild members and students of any institution
$100 general public
Enrollment is limited to 15.

This workshop will teach traditional techniques for rendered or drawn
display lettering, using historical forms as a reference point.
Participants will develop their sensitivity to letter genre,
proportion, and weight; as well as their interaction. You will gain
experience evaluating and refining your letters while considering
their potential use. Projects will include at least one title design,
and explorations of the design possibilities in drawn lettering with a
bit of subtle collage. You are encouraged to bring a titling text to
the workshop as a basis for experimentation.

Peter Bain is Assistant Professor, Graphic Design concentration, in
the Department of Art at Mississippi State University. His projects
have been recognized by the AIGA and Type Directors Club; and appeared
in Communication Arts and Letter Arts Review. Prior to founding his
own design studio, he worked as a Type Director in New York. He has
taught at Parsons/The New School for Design, Pratt Institute, and the
Wells Book Arts Summer Institute. Bain co-curated the exhibition
Blackletter: Type and National Identity” at the Cooper Union School
of Art. He received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University.
