Who´s afraid of Rudolf Koch?  .  (Rudolf Koch´s Gothic Adventure ) For those who love gothic & for those who don’t yet. 

You might already be a big fan of gothic and blackletter, but it happened to me that I didn´t like Rudolf Koch´s gothic work when I first saw it many years ago at the Klingspor Museum at Offenbach. I was especially shocked by his very expressive works and couldn´t believe that he is the same person who also designed famous typefaces like the Maximilian or the Wilhelm-Klingspor type. So, yes – I´ve been afraid of him.

But I also believe that the study of gothic and blackletter is very important for every calligrapher and person in love with letters. So, I began with my own research on Rudolf Koch as a person, a lettering artist and a craftsman.

Come with me on a journey during which you learn more about the character of Rudolf and his ideas and thoughts, have a closer look at his career and work and after all let all this be an inspiration for your own thoughts, ideas and work. We will go step-by-step through his instructions on blackletter-forms, try some of his typefaces and then analyse his expressive gothic writing. All the new things you discover will flow into your own work. This is meant to be a trip into your own contemporary approach to gothic and blackletter.
