calligraphy & typography

Appreciating this FontFeed post …

1. Loving this quote:

M A U R I C E  G Ö L D N E R | “At that time, the core curriculum had a strong focus on traditional craftsmanship. Calligraphy lessons were obligatory for all undergraduates. We were taught to write different styles with broad nib pen and pointed nib pen and we had to acquire these styles in their original historical order.”

2. Eva Zeisel is so cool


ahh, typography makes me happy

antique gorgeousness

These Olivia Collings antique stones are gorgeously cut. I say this all the time, i know… to my utter despair, craftsmanship is just not the same these days. Anybody else want to go on a time travel shopping spree?

architectural seduction

“Emerging from the landscape like an uncovered stone, the luxury accommodations are revealed
in geometric cut-outs from the topography. the architecture is inserted into the natural faults
and fissures of the land, resulting in simple and elemental forms that aim to enhance and embrace
the site. as a living space, the project seeks to provide a direct connection between man and nature
by leaving many elements of the design raw and honest to its surrounding.”
