ABOUT SABINE Like fingerprints, everybody’s handwriting is unique. The outward expression of the inner soul, handwriting is a labour of the heart and hand. In the loops, dots and scribbles our authentic story is written. This physical act of writing – scratching letters onto paper – fully engages the senses. There is texture and tactility, movement and rhythm. It is a living thing, different this day, this hour, to the next. Through emotion and experience, hand-lettering elevates the alphabet beyond mere symbols into art – beautiful and unrepeatable. I believe in the artistry of letters and the gesture of words – the curves of an m, the toss of a dotted i, the string of cursive letters. And as the letter curl and words intertwine they write their own poetry. Harmony and discord is voiced in the curves and lines, while smudges and drips favour feelings over legibility. Emotional, physical and real, the art of hand-lettering reminds us we are human.
