I absolutely loved Calligrapher Nicolas Ouchenir’s interview with Garance Dore.
My favorite part of the interview was when Ouchenir said:
“We can’t do without the world of pens because writing things by hand brings out our imperfections. If you grow up without seeing your mistakes, you won’t know how to handle failure. All these mood boards, Tumblr pages etc. today don’t really belong to anyone in the end, there is no longer a sense of property. Whereas writing shows who you truly are. You need to know yourself in order to take a pen and put your feelings down on paper. There are difficult phases in every lifetime and I think it’s important to take the time to sit down and be alone sometimes.
I write 8 hours every day. With calligraphy, you are eternally unsatisfied.”
