With over 1.5 million accounts following him in social media I’m guessing that not many of you have missed the simply amazing work of master calligrapher Seb Lester, right?

“I find the Latin alphabet to be one of mankind’s most beautiful and profound creations” – Seb Lester

Seb’s passion for letters(or addiction, is you ask him) really shines through when you look at the fascinating videos that he shares with his following. From re-creating world famous logos by hand to seemingly effortlessly gliding a pen across a piece of paper to produce spectacular calligraphy that will makes your jaw drop. It’s probably just a matter of time before someone from the land of lawsuits sues him for causing their jaw to break. Ok, maybe not… But I wouldn’t be surprised if it actually happened, that’s how good he is.

More of Seb’s work can be seen on his profiles on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.

  • Francesco Gavardi

    the hand drawn logos are cool. but the cursive lettering design are getting old

    • The true tragedy of this is Seb is a really talented typographer and he’s had to copy existing logos to gain notoriety. His work is beautiful and is what people should be remembering, I’ve been a fan for a long time. His ambigrams are brilliant.
