Like so many others, much younger than me, I enjoy looking at fancy fonts. I spend valuable time searching through PicMonkey, Microsoft, and countless Google sites for decorative and cool fonts to use in my writings. I type them in my blog, in instant messages and draw them on wall art in my kitchen.
What started out in a conversation between hubs and me about a lost art, is not lost. Since the first known writing discovered in 3100 BC by the Sumerians and Egyptians, writing has evolved. From pictorials that express ideas that there were no words to adequately convey to symbols and letters that are collected together to share concepts with us.
Writing has expanded with knowledge and understanding that conforming to one idea of right is ancient and history. I wonder what people of the future will say about our methods of communicating. What will they make of our dictionaries that grow each year with new words. Will they think of us as varied and complex or the idealist romantics of our time. I will carry on… and revel in the freedom of using graphic fonts to express the feelings and the moments I am in.
I wish I was clever enough to convert fancy fonts to computer images to share, but alas, I am not. Instead I share with you a couple of sites where I found some great free fonts. Since I stumbled on to 'A Typical English Home' site, I may spend a day learning and creating my own font. Do let me know if you try it and how successful you are.
