The Edward Johnston Foundation is dedicated to the promotion of public awareness of calligraphy, not only as an art form in its own right but also as the seed and reference point for many other lettering disciplines including modern typeface design. It is based at the Turner Dumbrell workshops in Ditchling, East Sussex. Ditchling is the former home of Edward Johnston and birthplace of the modern revival of calligraphy.

“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”.HERMANN ZAPF
