    The Pen is Mightier

    Posted: 03/20/2013 Author kb

    John Foster posts “Accidental Mysteries” on the Design Observer site (designobserver.com). He recently posted some images from a 17th Century German book on calligraphy entitled (I kid you not): The Proper Art of Writing: A Compilation of All Sorts of Capital or Initial Letters of German, Latin and Italian Fonts from Different Masters of the Noble Art of Writing. Or as it is known in German: Kunstrichtige Schreibart allerhand Versalie[n] oder AnfangsBuchstabe[n] der teĆ¼tschen, lateinischen und italianischen Schrifften aus unterschiedlichen Meistern der edlen Schreibkunst zusammen getragen. Yikes! Where does that fit in the Dewey Decimal System?

    The images are quite striking and I have posted a couple here. For more go to: http://observatory.designobserver.com/feature/accidental-mysteries-030313/37723/
