Guest Typographers Learn Stone Cutting!

February 2, 2019

Rob Keller and Kimya Gandhi of Motaitalic were in the Quad Cities for the holidays. Their home base is Mumbai, India. The Art Legacy League was pleased to provide this husband/wife team of typographer lettering artists with a seminar on inscription cutting and send them home with their completed slates. The attached photographs tell the story. They began by writing Imperial Romans with the broad edged brush. They then transferred their designs to slate using the pointed brush. They then cut with mallet and chisel, gilt with gold, and finished with a protective seal coat.
