Title page for the aforementioned book I’m writing for my grandchildren. As you can see here and in other images from the book the linework and type are not perfect – and there’s a reason for that. I’m producing this in the “old-school” manner much like we did forty years ago. I’m using my computer strictly as a stat camera/typositor – all the drawings are done with pencil, pen and template as is the line work and graphic devices. I’m placing the type by hand and designing “by eye”.
You’ll also occasionally see stray construction lines that I’ve left in.
Some people dress in period costume and live in restored villages as a means of “living history”. This project it my way of doing so as well.
