Hello, I have just stumbled across your blog and thoroughly enjoyed your mix of content, from stone cutting to typography as well as the ephemera. I look forward to seeing more of this.

I too have a passion for typography and blog about the things I like do and see. I have been promised a hands-on tutorial in lettercutting over the christmas break which is something I have not done before and really looking forward to.

I have added you to my bookmarks and will return…

In the meantime, please take a look at my latest blog


Hi Christopher, thank you so much for you kind comments. Good luck with the course. Be patient – it will take time, and doing some drawing of letters in the lead up will help. I will be posting some more posts in the Elements of Lettering page very soon which you may find helpful. Visited your site – fabulous. Inspires me to take some images of lettering where I live!
