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
