“Train Times,” original calligraphy (ink on paper) by Carl Rohrs, on view

“Train Times,” original calligraphy (ink on paper) by Carl Rohrs, on view now with KALLIGRAPHIA XIV, An Exhibition by Members of the Friends of Calligraphy. In the Skylight Gallery, Sixth Floor, Main Library, through August 22. ————————————— “Lately I’ve been so inpired by Czech scribe and type designer, Oldrich Menhart, I wanted to just write for this piece. I couldn’t do his inspiration justice in English, though, since some of his greatest renown comes from his seamless integration of the Czech language’s diacritical marks into his typeface designs. The words are just numbers, but poetic in English. I hope they sound good in Czech.”–Carl Rohrs ————————————— Meet Carl this Saturday, July 18, when he demonstrates “Brush Versus Pen.” In the Latino-Hispanic Meeting Room, Main Library, 2-4pm. #OldrichMenhart #Czech #Czechlanguage #TheWordsAreJustNumbers #TrainTimes #CarlRohrs #Kalligraphia14 #FriendsOfCalligraphy #HarrisonCollection #sfplbookarts #sfpubliclibrary
