Fraktur is a term describing both a 16th century German typeface and manuscript letter form, and the manuscript documents (now considered folk art) produced by the Pensylvania Germans in the 18th and 19th centuries. Join us for a FREE workshop, Lettering in the Fraktur Style, Saturday, May 9th, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Here you'll be introduced to Fraktur and be shown how to create the letter forms. This is a hands-on workshop designed for adults and older teens. Learn something both old and new! You'll also be able to visit the exhibit of original fraktur in the Rare Book Department. Presented by the Philadelphia Calligraphers' Society in conjunction with the Framing Fraktur exhibition at Parkway Central Library. The workshop will be held in the Print & Picture Collection, 2nd floor, Parkway Central Library.
