Both lifelong practitioners of calligraphy and recent converts to the art form are finding vibrant expression and new outlets for the design of words. While pen and paper remain essential tools, the digital world has taken on a central role, creating global communities of calligraphers to exchange work and ideas. The Design of Words celebrates the work of one such group, the Calligraphy Masters, who far-flung members--Calligrafreaks, as they are affectionately known--filled forty Moleskine sketchbooks for an exhibition in Milan. This book is a curated collection of those sketchbooks, celebrating the different styles and personal interpretations of calligraphers in fifteen countries and reflecting the world of calligraphy today.


Francesco Guerrera is an art director by profession and maker, photographer, and calligrapher by passion. He is a partner of Milan-based communications agency Le Balene and founder of its Acqua su Marte exhibition space. Previously, he worked at Saatchi & Saatchi, DDB, Arnold Worldwise, Armando Test, and TBWA/Italy.
