SEBASTIAN LESTER: PASSIONATE ABOUT LETTERFORMS

My handwriting is pretty decent (only when it's in all caps as seen in my website banner), but illustrator Sebastian Lester takes the art of the written word to another level entirely in this video as he beasts a form of Blackletter typography that was popular in Europe from the 12th to 18th centuries.

It's creepy how steady and assured his hand is as he demonstrates this antiquated practice.  Seriously, beautifully creepy.
