Written by hand

We all can see the magical value of a piece of calligraphy or lettering made by hand because it reflects the unique personality of their maker in every angle, pressure and thickness of line. The imperfections, mistakes and slight traces of previous sketching leave in the final handlettering a reminder of the time and work spend in the making. Lettering is also a reminder of predigital signs when each one was a labour of love and originality. Artists like Dana Tanamachi, Margaret Kilgallen, Nate Williams, Luca Barcellona are all unique as handlettering should be.
