> MODERN PENMANSHIP

My goal is to preserve the beauty of handwriting, but more important: revitalise it in modern times.

Nearly every type of letter with which we are familiar, has come to us through the medium, or been modified by the influence, of THE PEN.

What is penmanship?

Penmanship is the skill of good handwriting. It has a far wider meaning than calligraphy, and refers to an interest in handwriting in general, not necessarily to a calligraphic level.

Nice to meet you!

I have dedicated my life to letters. I would call myself a generalist within a specialisation; everything about letters, in whatever context, is my ‘ikigai’. 

My passion led me to the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, where I graduated from the department Typographic Design. I also finished the Master Type & Media and the Expert Class Type Design of the Plantin Institute of Typography (Antwerp).

Still, my first love was handwriting. And old love doesn’t rust.

Get your handwritten letter!

Writing a letter by hand forces you to slow down. Not only in a practical way. It also slows down your thoughts, your observations, and the story you share.

If you would like to experience what it is like to find a FUN letter on your doormat, please leave your email address here!

Every month I will randomly pick one person who will receive a handwritten letter. If you are picked, I will contact you for your address. I will ONLY use it for sending the letter.
