The love of type

(Music playing) To learn to draw a letter well takes a lot of time. I?ve been drawing letters since 1948. And I?m still learning how to draw. (Music playing) Jan Van Krimpen, one of my great heroes, he says, "I do not want to draw a beautiful letter. I want to draw a good letter." Now I think that good letters are beautiful.

I love to draw letters. I found out that I did. It pleased me. I think it goes back to basic personality. For instance I have a love of detail. Despite the fact I call myself a logotype designer teacher, I?m delighted to say that my life revolves around typography. It permeates our lives,it permeates our culture. Our history is written in typography.

And it?s just something I love to do. I?m happiest when I?m at the board with a pencil.
