a moment of silence. calligraphy for peace.

Yaronimus-Maximus's picture

hey people.
i made a small movie clip,
calling for a moment of silence,
dedicated to the dual casualties of the
current war between israel and palestine.

i created the calligraphy based on the "wilhelm klingspor gotisch" font,
with my own hebrewed version to it, adding slight hebrew serifs called "Okatsim".
i used a red calligraphy ink ("Winsor & Newton") on a smooth surface paper (although the movie has low quality, so the nuances are lost).

i would be glad to show better resolution scans of the calligraphy if you want to.

Thank you Yaronimus, for giving us something beautiful at a moment of horror. Your tribute is very moving.

Very touching, and well done.

I don't know how Israel could tolerate being bombed, but I am very fearful that nothing good will come out of this war. I hope I'm wrong.

Fabulous calligraphy (I particularly like "sorroW")
And brave of you to speak out for non-violence.

I don't like blackletter. If there is one adjective to describe it, I would say "oppressive".
But for your purpose, it is certainly engaging.

A very strong way to make a statement. Very nice. Thank you for sharing this.
