The Art of Typography

The E is buttons from a tin of spare buttons that belonged to my grandmother and my mother and now me. The E was shaped in the same way my grandmother would write her name.

This is my H - made out of washii tape.

Because there's a word for people like me I wanted to tackle this challenge by copying and not tracing. I've decided I really like serif letters and drawing those 'feet'. My characters seemed to get larger the more I did! It was very relaxing.

This is a gelato store in the city. I think the colours are very Italian (complete with colosseum in the background)

This is a boutique tea shop and it's never occured to me until today that the font and colour are so very unrelated to tea in my eyes. You can glimpse the store and it's quite dark and ambient inside.
