Typographers' Handwriting 

Permanent location of 'Typographers' Handwriting'

Interesting idea from Cameron Adams: How do typographers’ handwriting look?

Turns out, many of them have quite sloppy handwriting — no offense but really, Mark Simonson’s could go for mine.

If these examples are in any way representative, I think it’s safe to say that there are little to no correlation between handwriting and the types they create. But it was an interesting idea nonetheless, and one that I think Cameron deserves duly credit for.

(By the way, Nikola Djurek’s handwriting is bloody gorgeous. It bears reminiscence of Zapfino.)
