Silva

10 OTF

What happens if one tries to design some Didone letterfoms using a broad-nib pen? This question was the starting point for this project when, in June 2013, I started doing the first sketches of Silva. Unusually, the first two letters were capital letters: N and A. The construction principles behind this typeface subverts traditional calligraphic foundations of the use of the broad-nib pen: we usually hold the pen at 30°, but here the use of this tool was as free as possible, allowing variations of angles where necessary to achieve the desired result.
