Exemplar from Charles P. Bluemlein?
« on: April 08, 2014, 04:17:41 PM »
(Erica, if this shouldn't be posted feel free to remove the link!)

I saw some discussion on Instagram about a beautiful exemplar from the Higgins Ink Co. Scripts and Manuscript Lettering book. With a little sluething I found this posted online: http://luc.devroye.org/CharlesPBluemlein/. There are some interesting brush lettering examples on there, too! I'm not sure who the guy running this site is.

I found this absolutely fascinating! And even more so that I had never heard of them before! What a neat idea -- scripts based on your friends' signatures.  ;D

LOL Ellen! Not to worry - it is set up to link to the video whenever a youtube or vimeo link is listed.  :)

Wow Briana and Christopher, I was obviously very lazy / hasty when I did my research yesterday about this charming exemplar ;)! So thanks for digging this out!
