Spring 2021 ︎ SUNY Purchase ︎ (DES3440) Typographic Investigations
Calligraphy BooksWe will go through specific types of lettering and their historical references but the precocious among you will inevitably want to know how to draw other types of letters.
General Typography BooksThese are more rudimentary books on typography if you feel you need to catch up on things.
Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning CoursesYou have free access to Lynda through Purchase. Not placing these here to “pass you off” to these resources by any means, but if you’re looking at similar materials to what we cover in class that you can pause, maybe you respond more to the instructor there, or want to get ahead they are available.
