“Boudens Times Six” with Liesbet Boudens: Sunday, July 16


Boudens Times Six: A Slide Lecture by Liesbet Boudens

SVA Annex, 214 E. 21st Street, Room 703A
Free and open to the public. Guests are welcome. Refreshments served.

The Society is thrilled to welcome noted Belgian calligrapher Leisbet Boudens to New York City to lead a workshop, Designing Extraordinary Letters, on July 15 & 16. (There’s one spot left if you’d like to take it!) We hope you will join us on Sunday, July 16 at 4:30 pm for a fascinating talk and presentation of Leisbet’s work and that of her illustrious family. In recent years the magical city of Bruges has become something of an international mecca for both traditional calligraphy and pioneering and audacious lettering. Leisbet comes from a family that has been involved in lettering, illustration, book design and stone carving for three generations. The work of each member is widely celebrated and is in the collections of museums, universities, and many patrons around the world. Leisbet’s letter designs are unique and provocative and challenge the viewer (and scribe) to approach letters from a fresh and dynamic perspective. Don’t miss this presentation and be sure to bring your camera and notebook! Even if you are not in the workshop you are bound to come away dazzled and inspired.

Liesbet has been featured in Letter Arts Review; you can download a part of one of her articles here.
