Lettering has been around since ancient societies. It was a way of changing sound into visual speech. That sounds magical, doesn't it. That is why the ancient peoples thought that "Lettering" must have been invented by the gods. During that time, the local priest were the ones who usually did most of the writing and got a big reputation for doing it. Even today, lettering plays an important role in all visual communication.
