Schreibsession Meetup

For a few months, I was organizing a Meetup called Kalligraphie in Berlin.
It’s a get together taking place every six weeks. Now, as I had a few other things coming up which needed my attention, unfortunately I had to pass on the organization. I am excited that Sina and Ute will take over – I am clapping my hands for carrying on the newly established tradition. Thank you!

It was so much fun and I learned a lot about writing italics, but also about the history and theory of that style.
