As long as letterpress printing was the only economically feasible means of reproducing texts, typefaces were designed to meet its technical limitations. The invention of lithography opened the path to unprecedented free forms. A fine example being 'English' script which was reproduced in a most elegant form by means of the stone engraving technique. Under its influence a number of similar printing types were created whose forms were derived from the hand writing prevelant in schools and mediaeval chancelleries, in which the writing tool - be it broad-edged pen, a round pen, a pointed pen or a brush - can still be discerned. Some of these typefaces still give a glimpse of the calligrapher's style and personality.
