This week in Type

The 1879 Spencerian Compendium of Penmanship available for download: http://www.iampeth.com/books/spencerian_compendium/compendium_index.php. This is a great manual. Personally I own two old calligraphy manuals (very simple ones) and some copies of a really old first grade Portuguese calligraphy book from Catarina’s father. As I’ve been working with two master students who are designing calligraphic typefaces from FBAUP, this really comes in handy. I think I’ll be devouring this one for days in a row…

Via Fontfeed.

Not really Type Design stuff, but nonetheless great (and late) Valentine’s poscards. Via Deathbykerning. Wish I thought of these…
