However, lots of new artists are making their own hand drawn type and exploring this exciting art form. by Deanne Cheuk Why I Chose It -typography is everywhere, so it's interesting to learn how it works and how we can make our own!

-hand drawn font gives you freedom to make your letters really match the message and emotions your trying to get across by Andy Smith A BIT OF HISTORY... Technically the first hand drawn typography would have been the very first letter ever written, But the first typeface created with punch cuts was made by Johann Gutenberg in Frankfurt in 1440. It is called Gutenberg's Textura and it is the worlds first font.It is said he made 300 letterforms before he printed 180 copies of the Bible in 1454, which would have been the first publication ever printed this way. A man by the name of Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson created a font called Doves. It was used in quite a few volumes of the Bible, and is quite famous. It isn't as famous for its publishing, but because after years of fiddling with the type, Cobden- Sanderson got so frustrated that he threw his beloved typeface into the Thames river. It took him years to dispose of it, as the metal punches are very heavy, and there was many different sizes, but it is completely gone now. Deanne
