This was about composing a Haiku about Typography. This is a collaborative exercise. As a group, compose a Haiku about Typography using the phrasing pattern: 5-7-5.
Strive for even, harmonious flow and rhythm: between each of the letters
— between groupings of letters — between words — between lines.
We had to consider for the first time, how the spacing of a line of type affects the lines above and below it. It’s about thinking about possible issues related to vertical spacing. Uppercase/small caps need more generous space between letters; larger letters need more space
between them too.
Was about creating letters that have a x-height of at least 4.5” from one of the words in your Haiku.
Each person will use a word of at least 5 letters, print one letter per 8.5 x 11 sheet. Use a typefacethat has small caps available. Print out the sheets. Assemble the word on a wall. The exercise
is one of keringing and letterspacing. Document this by photographing the word. Place this
photo on an 8.5 x 11 sheet.
