Petra Dočekalová: New writing manuals

→ In a PhD dissertation she is preparing for the Type Design and Typography studio at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM) in Prague, Petra Dočekalová focuses on script and handwriting typefaces. She studies their applications and overlap not only in the Czech context, but in the global context as well. She creates new morphologies, experimenting with the forms of individual letters and examining the possibilities of the hand as the calligrapher’s primary tool. In her script styles, she tries to actively revive the fading craft of sign painting, and to popularize the subject of cursive writing in primary and secondary schools. As part of her research, she would like to introduce a series of new writing manuals, which she hopes might replace the existing Czech writing standard that has been used in Czechia without any major changes for almost eighty years.

Petra will talk in English.
