Solid object in purple landscape

…for thousands of years people have been led to believe that anything and everything can be obtained if only one has the right techniques and methods. What is needed is to be aware of the ease with which the mind slips comfortably back into this age-old pattern. Certain kinds of things can be achieved by techniques and formulae, but originality and creativity are not among these. The act of seeing this deeply (and not merely verbally and intellectually) is also the act in which originality and creativity can be born.

Change of name

To those who have subscribed under All About Lettering, an explanation.

All About Lettering has been extant 10 years – the anniversary was November 2020. In that time I published more than 350 posts on lettering related themes. These remain.

However, as I stated at the start of this year [2021] I am eager to explore other areas. I have therefore taken the decision to rename the site All About Creativity, which expresses where I am now.

I hope you will continue to follow, but understand if this change of direction is not what you are after. Take care and thank you for your interest.

To new subscribers of this blog.

Do browse the historic posts on lettering and other typographic related areas. You may find something of interest.
