Settling in at Uni. Reading!


Hi everyone! I've been in England for a month now, trying to get used to the learning environment here, attempting to schedule out my year in preparation for essay, dissertation, and actual font design work! I've definitely let this blog fall to the wayside - even though my interest in the scripts has certainly remained strong! I have been lucky to connect with many enthusiastic people through this blog, and would love for Hindi Rinny to continue to be a source of inspiration/place of discussion for Indian scripts.

With that, I also feel that it might do some good for me to restructure the blog at some point, in order to make room for more academic, in-depth writing to sit alongside the images, and to also create some kind of resource for finding information on Indic fonts, font designers, and the like. So those are my dreams! When I get some free time, I think I will work to make them a reality! In the meantime, I will try to post some short bursts on Twitter and reply to emails as best I can! Good luck to all of you out there, and I hope to deliver a re-structured website some time in the near future!

Erin! I am already so curious about what you and the rest of the matd2010 bunch are doing. How many of you have blogs/websites/etc.? A list of of this year's student blogs would be awesome. Good luck and have fun!

Hi, I have a tattoo in a language similar to the ones displayed here on your blog. Here's the link to my picture http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_apXHM_2PuOg/SyKcsiqdmsI/AAAAAAAAEAQ/pstZWb9Q7CU/s1600-h/img_1669_32009278.jpg

Do you know what it is? I know it means heavenly messenger, but I don't know what language it is.
Thanks, good blog,
~Cami

I don’t usually reply to posts but I will in this case. I’ve been experiencing this very same problem with a new WordPress installation of mine. I’ve spent weeks calibrating and getting it ready when all of a sudden… I cannot delete any content. It’s a workaround that, although isn’t perfect, does the trick so thanks! I really hope this problem gets solved properly asap.

Learning Indian scripts.... WOW! I have always been fascinated by Kanji. I lived in Japan for ten years.
Now, I am learning Chinese. I have never thought about learning Indian script.

Good luck with the studies
