"I have always been fascinated with the beauty of letter forms and the care and precision that goes into creating a unified typeface. The elegant pointed pen calligraphy of Anne Binder seemed a perfect beginning for my venture into digital typeface creation. As I began to develop her calligraphic style in Fontographer, I also began to read more about the history of the alphabet and writing."
