TYPO Berlin 2015: Hebrew Calligraphy — Hebräische Kalligrafie / by Christine Lange



The Hebrew Alef-bet is the alphabet used by ancient and modern Hebrew and one of the oldest alphabets still in use. This workshop will provide insights into Hebrew calligraphy and script.

We want to give participants an impression of how the Hebrew alphabet is structured and inform them about its culture of writing. Those taking part will have the chance to write Hebrew letters using a quill and working together with the expert Amichai Green, becoming acquainted during this process with the Hebrew alphabet’s characteristic style and beauty.
