Awesome Typography by Xavier Casalta

on Behance

Aged only 21, the French artist Xavier Casalta is working on illustrations and typography in all black & white dots, using essentially a Isograph 0,10mm pen. A rendering of a high quality, to discover with in the article with a selection of his works, including numerous versions of his latest project ‘The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog​​’.

The Proper Art of Writing (1655)

I stumbled upon these calligraphy examples on The Public Domain Review. They are taken from a 17th Century German book. Some of the characters are so highly decorated aren’t even recognisable anymore. 

The volumes’ full title is as extravagant as the examples it shows:  The Proper Art of Writing: a compilation of all sorts of capital or initial letters of German, Latin and Italian fonts from different masters of the noble art of writing. See more here
