Since having uncovered my old calligraphy set and my dad's old fountain pens, the fingers have not stopped clicking on different calligraphy and FP websites. Links and links later, I happily stumbled upon the lovely, lovely portfolio of Paperfinger.
It's really nice to see how the art of beautiful hand-written words is very much alive. And their modern take on calligraphy is so refreshing while still maintaining that old, romantic charm. I've noticed that a lot of weddings abroad still address envelopes and even invitations or thank you cards by hand, and I do hope that the raw appeal of such things hop on over to our shores. It's one thing to use a calligraphy-inspired or handwritten font (don't get me wrong, I'm an avid fan of these types), but it's another thing to actually feel and see ink done by hand. I feel that it adds a little bit of love and passion. I am wishing that in my quest to study lettering and calligraphy, I could open a similar service here (wish wish wish!).
Anyway, to the actual feature of this post. I'm reposting some of the shop's work on logo design, that I hope will inspire soon-to-be-wed couples (and me!).
