We have chosen to interview to Keith Adams for
the first number of Nibster because in the group
of calligraphers in charge of the magazine, we
considered that he is a very important part of our
foundational baggage. He is a teacher in capital
letters and without a doubt, a most important
source of inspiration.

“Nobody had such a lasting effect on the revival of contemporary writing as Edward Johnston. He paved the way for all lettering artists of the twentieth century and ultimately they owe their success to him.”
