The Mighty Hands of Bernard Maisner

Sleepy_Hollow_Depp-third(2).jpg

Steven Heller checks in with our most talented calligraphical cousin in this interview with Bernard Maisner, stationer and hand-letterer to the stars, and in some cases, as the stars. Allow us to explain.

Maisner’s hands have actually played a surprisingly big role in major motion pictures. He did the spooky hand-lettering on-camera as Johnny Depp in Sleepy Hollow (above) and also stood in for Sean Connery’s hands in Finding Forrester (a film you might have all but forgotten if it wasn’t for this).
