  • Re: Seb Lester's doodles, calligraphy or lettering?

    The terminology varies by practice and profession. For instance, the people who write the text in comic books are credited with lettering them. Craig's suggestion that 'lettering' be taken as a catch-all term seems very reasonable as a non-specialist, everyday usage, especially since English lacks another good general term.

    I find it a little ironic that the people who are most insistent on the distinction between writing and drawing letters are type folk, most of whom do neither. :wink:
