Lettercutting demonstrations will take place at Salvatori’s showroom on London’s Wigmore Street from September 17 to 25. Each day, a different expert will work with a different piece of Salvatori stone, producing characters from a particular period in ethnigraphy.
By the end of the week, lettercutters will have created a full alphabet and set of numerals charting the history of lettering in stone – from ancient Greece and the Renaissance era through to Johnston, Gill, Bauhaus and post-Modernism. Here’s the schedule for demonstrations:
Saturday September 17 – Eric Marland, Ancient Greek
Sunday September 18 – John Nash, Imperial Roman
Monday September 19 – Charlotte Howarth, Renaissance
Tuesday September 20 – Nicholas Sloan, Scotch Roman
Wednesday September 21 – Annet Stirling, Bauhaus
Thursday September 22 – Christopher Elsey, Gill and Johnston
Friday September 23 – Mark Frith, Post-Modernism
Saturday September 24 – Phillip Surey, Contemporary
The showroom is located at 26 Wigmore Street, W1U 2RL and is open from 9.30pm to 5pm. Demonstrations will begin at 1pm. Sekford will be at designjunction from September 22 to 25 – for details, see thedesignjunction.co.uk
