The twentieth century calligraphic revival had three founders all of whom knew each other’s work. Edward Johnston in Britain, Rudolf Von Larisch in Austria and Rudolf Koch in Germany. In this lecture Ewan traces the relationship between these traditions and their long-term influence.

Ewan Clayton grew up near the village of Ditchling, Sussex, home to the calligrapher Edward Johnston. His family worked as weavers in the Guild of craftsmen on Ditchling Common founded by Eric Gill and the printer Hilary Pepler in 1921. Ewan was also a member of the Guild before it closed in 1988.

Today Ewan is Professor in Design at the University of Sunderland where he assists in directing their International Calligraphy Research Centre. Ewan has extensive teaching experience. He steered the old Roehampton calligraphy courses through to degree status, established Sunderland University’s course at Kensington Palace. He is a core member of staff at The Royal Drawing School.
