I got a kick out of looking through them, and decided to post them to show you that even I was a tourist in NYC once! But this was my first trip on my own, with just my friend. So what do two 16 year-olds do unsupervised in New York City?
The Calligraphy and Lettering of W. Refreshments will be served. Three men—Edward Johnston in England, Rudolf Koch in Germany, and Rudolf von Larisch in Austria—are widely credited with spurring the 20th century revival of interest in calligraphy. Their personal work and, especially, their educational efforts provided the models, impetus and inspiration for the subsequent practice of calligraphy as a craft or an art.
Often ignored is the history of calligraphy as a design skill. This is especially true of the United States where the influence of these three men was limited. Instead, the early American practitioners of calligraphy, members of the nascent profession of graphic design, tended to be self-taught.
Their work was often idiosyncratic, marked by a distinctive personal style rather than that of a school.
The prime example of this independent American tradition is W. Dwiggins was a jack-of-all-trades: Today he is best known for his typefaces, his stencil ornaments and the marionettes he created as a hobby.
His lettering and calligraphy have gone overlooked. But, as with others of his generation, lettering was an essential design skill. It informed and underpinned much of his advertising and book work as well as his type design.
It will survey his lettering and calligraphy styles and try to place him in the context of his contemporaries such as Johnston, Koch, Frederic W.

Her courses include drawing, color, painting, 2D design and calligraphy Western and Non-Western. She served on the board for several years as programs coordinator. She has a background in engineering and spent years working in the financial industry before becoming the mother of twin girls.

He later studied graphic and typeface design at SVA. Adrian currently works in the information technology field. His first formal introduction to Western calligraphy was at an SoS workshop a few years ago, and he has been an avid participant in classes and events ever since.
Adrian believes strongly in the value of writing by hand and the lettering arts.
He hopes to contribute to the work of the SoS to preserve and extend these traditions. He has taught workshops throughout the US, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, and Singapore, and is directing much of his attention now to the future of calligraphy and its great legacy in Western culture.
He served on the Board of Governors in and hopes to continue in this position to promote calligraphic literacy to an unsuspecting public.Griffiss Air Force Base Technology Park, Rome, NY. We took a short drive to Rome, NY, to visit Griffiss Air Force Base Technology Park.
Planes, especially military planes, just don’t float my boat. I'm writing a resume right now targeted towards a specific company. My girlfriend (a classmate) and I were (see, I don't know if that's the right word, hence this question!) the first from our scho.
My classmate Janette is coming to New York on a one week vacation from Jamaica. She is coming along with her boyfriend. She will be visiting many interesting places such as Empire State building, Time Square, World Trade Center ‘Ground Zero, Statue of Liberty, Museum of Naturally History and many more places.
I have been promising my Bronx Forgotten Fans some new material, and the fulfillment starts now. In fall I walked through Norwood, a triangle-shaped Bronx neighborhood defined by Woodlawn Cemetery on the north, the New York Botanical Garden on the east, and Mosholu Parkway on the south; Reservoir Oval, delineating a former Williamsbridge Reservoir, approximately limns the center.
