    Very interesting I rarely use my handwriting at all these days. It's like I've almost forgot how it's done when I finally pick up a pen.

    I've wondered about this and found the samples very interesting. I thought there would be a lot more similarity between the handwriting and the font styles but they really run the gamut from tight & neat to multi-angular and flamboyant and the fonts each designer created don't necessarily match their own handwriting style at all.

    To take this a step further, wouldn't it be fascinating to have those handwriting samples analyzed by an expert and find out how similar (or dissimilar) the results are, personality-wise? Maybe typographers can be pigeon-holed yet, CSI profiler style.
