Caroline Murray, director of the British Academy of Graphology and AnOther’s resident graphologist, unravels the hidden meaning behind the handwriting styles of fashion notables
A letter from Mrs Prada to AnOther editor in chief Jefferson Hack
The writer has a dynamic personality. She has an active and rapid perception of situations, and her responses are quick and confident. Her life is orientated to the future. Opinions are strong and she is authoritative, decisive, and has all the qualities which make a natural leader (dynamic movement: firm, progressive, resolute, free end strokes, wide, connected, rhythmic, rapid). She is full of initiative and has many innovative ideas (progressive, extravert, dynamic, unusual combination of letters, reverse movements i.e. “magazines”, some irregularities, wide spacing). She creates objectives, and achieves them and likes setting goals where she can put to good use her spirit of enterprise and her taste for action (rapid, progressive, dynamic). She has an original way of looking at things (unusual combination of letters, reverse movements) but her versatile and adaptable nature (supple to firm tension, wide, rhythmic) allows her to listen to others, (aerated, good spacing between lines) and reflect, without losing her independence and autonomy. Socially she is charming and courteous, (warm stroke, good layout, mostly supple tension) enjoying communication with others, though she will keep her distance when it suits her, (wide spacing between words) and may not always suffer fools gladly (rapid, dynamic, some irregularities, some obstruction).
In conclusion the writer must surely captivate all those around her with her love of life, her quick wit, and her sensual, artistic nature where ideas are constantly in full flow.
