Ever wondered if famous typographers have a good handwriting? I did, probably because I have a shitty handwriting myself and hope that I’ll be able to create a good font someday (working on it).
The Man in Blue did more than just wondering about that, he actually asked some prominent typographers to send him a scan of their handwriting. See the result on this page.
The type designers who replied are Eric Spiekermann, G√∂ran S√∂derstr√∂m, Nikola Djurek, Sebastian Lester, Mark Simonson, Kris Sowersby, Eduardo Manso, Veronika Burian, Marian Bantjes and Dino dos Santos. A nice thing would have been a graphologic analysis of the handwritings and compare it with the characteristics of the fonts of each creator.
