They are terms that describe the anatomy of letters. There are about 25 different terms which are good to know if you intend to hand letter, as I found out on Saturday at a hand lettering workshop run by Jo Morley at TheRizzeria Pop-up shop.
Below is a snap shot of the work I did on the day. I didn’t have time to finish-up a piece to print on the stencil printer, but am intending to go back and use it when I am ready.
I had a really great time and am looking forward to attending more hand lettering workshops. I missed out on tickets to Gemma O’Briens hand lettering class this Wednesday night, but that’s ok. I ve got enough to keep me statisfied for a while :)
