Practice Makes Perfect is an investigation into the world of gothic calligraphy, made during my exchange period at Cambridge School of Art.

I created an informative folder about the history of calligraphy that unfolds into an A2 sized poster on which I repeatedly drew each letter in the phrase “Practice Makes Perfect” effectively practicing the drawing of each letterform exhaustively as I tried to improve my dominance over the Textura Quadrata calligraphic hand.

Filmed with help from the brilliant Bruna Brandão.

Made in 2013.
