The Letterform Archive Lecture Series returns with calligrapher and artist Paul Herrera. Herrera's calligraphy and lettering training was done exclusively with Reverend E.M. Catich. Herrera worked as an inscription cutter and calligraphy seminar assistant with Father Catich from 1967 to 1979. During his 40-year career Herrera has conducted numerous lettering seminars for calligraphy organizations throughout the United States and Canada. He continued inscription work for Wichita State University, an architectural firm in Chicago, as well as for individual clients. He also served as the watercolor and calligraphy instructor at the former Davenport Municipal Art Gallery from 1973 to 1984. He retired in 2009 and now works full time in his studio offering workshops in calligraphy.
