Painting Speech

Posted in Uncategorized by Lina A.Hadi on July 14, 2011

‘Whence did the wond’rous mystic art arise,
of painting speech, and speaking to the eyes?
That we by tracing magic lines are taught,
how to embody, and to color thought?’

William Massey,
The Origin and Progress of Letters (1763)

(found in Calligraphiti; The Graphic Art of Niels Shoe Meulman)
