A growing interest in typography is kindling in my loins... So I'm sharing this little beauty with you today. Found in amongst a bundle of original drawings and artwork it's effectively a font, but hand-drawn. Not perhaps the kind of thing that I'd want to use on the front of a book, in fact, the more I think about it, I can't think of anyway in which I might have been able to use it but there was something mesmeric about the way it was drawn in black ink with one or two corrections in white... and in case anyone is wondering, I've already sold it!
PS. Thank you Thevina for adding comments here there and everywhere, lovely to see you here and even more lovely to have comments on the blog! A very well known blogger with a huge following (including me) recently started a post by saying that he had to revist an earlier topic because he had three or four blog-enquiries which, he said, was the blogger's equivalent of the phone ringing off the hook! He was being modest as his post regularly garner 20-30 comments but it is nice to see a few numbers as I scroll down. I'm glad you liked the photos and as a follow up to the Cockerell marbled paper post I should say that I recently found more sheets in different patterns but not enough of any of them to create even something as limited as Randwick Woods turned out to be. John C. YES... all 44,000 words typed out. I have toyed with the idea of getting OCR software but don't have the budget to get a decent version and I have found in the past that one gets what one pays for with both voice recognition and OCR software. However, I'm also being disingenuous a little, I kind of enjoy the challenge of putting it all onto the computer myself, plus, because of the slower speed of typing something as opposed to reading it, this way I am absolutely familiar with the text I'm publishing... intimately familiar... I like the way that typing the text creates a kind of relationship to it.
