Yesterday, friends gathered to play with an exercise from Nick Bantock's book The Trickster's Hat - a mischievous apprenticeship in creativity. We chose to work with exercise eight- composition. These almost look like eye charts. At first, I wasn't too keen on doing this, one letter glued to a 6x6 inch paper. I actually enjoyed the exercise and see possibilities for combining calligraphic hand made letters with varieties of type set letters.
