Simon Langsdale


Words provide inspiration and underpinning my work is the belief that hand-made lettering communicates in a way that the machine made letter cannot. Carved lettering is an ideal form for use on memorial stones as it is better able to represent a loved one’s character than type-faces or fonts. My letter forms are heavily influenced by the broad-edged pen and the broad-edged brush and I continually look to historical scripts and inscriptions for inspiration.
