Burgues Script Font

Burgues Script Font

Burgues Script is an ode to the late 19th-century American calligrapher Louis Madarasz, whose legendary pen has inspired penmanship schools for over 100 years. His talent has caused some people to call him “the most skilful penman the world has ever known.” I use the word ‘ode’ in a colloquially ambitious manner. If I were a poet, my words would be about things I desire but cannot attain, objects of utter beauty that make me wallow in humility, or people of enormous talent who look down at me from the clouds of genius. But I don’t write poems. My work consists of letters drawn to fit together that become an element of someone’s visual poetry. I am the poet’s assistant. Once in a while, the assistant persists on what the subject of the poem will be. And occasionally, the poet gives in to the persistence. I hope you, visual poet, find my persistence justified in this case.
