Searching through an old book for decorative fonts we found this beautiful typeface which we then coloured and tweaked before finally scanning. It took so much longer to do but the results are, to our eyes, very much superior with a roughness that digital cannot achieve. We have now spent an hour a day creating every letter except UVXYZ . No doubt we will start selling to folks with all those old school names – Ursula, Victor, Xavier, Yvonne and Zachery and regret our decision.
We are mad busy at the moment, which is why the blog posts have become infrequent but soon we will be back. I must post the next installment of ‘where in the world’ and my i-phone is full of images taken for blog posts that have got no further than download. The ‘must do’ list for 2015 is filling up fast too with so many new avenues to explore and ideas to develop. We are excited!
