typography

Hand lettering, no matter how simple it is, is always fascinating. How an artist’s steady hand run lines and loops at the right point is a skill. Illustrator and designer Sean McCabe have always enjoyed hand drawn lettering, he says:

In general, most people see words and read sentences to derive meaning. I saw letters as beautiful as shapes and curves with forms full of beauty. It wasn’t until years later that I discovered that I had a love for what was known as “typography”. What a feeling of relief and excitement all at once! I discovered that not only was I not some strange person with a deranged affection, but that there were also thousands of others who shared the same love for type. The internet has a unique ability for making one feel less weird.
