"In the world of screens and social-media, people are searching for ways to reconnect to the handmade and the authentic, to feel that spark of the personal in their interactions and in the objects that surround them. The art of modern lettering is a point of connection, a way of crafting the letters and words we use daily and turning them into something we feel in our soul." -- Introduction, Nicole Santo.
