This has already done the rounds, but I’m mesmerised by this brush so had to repost: 
“All your down strokes are thick, all your up strokes are thin…snap to the right, up thin.”

The R that didn’t make it.
I’ve been working on a lettering and typography project following on from my Exmouth Print. One the drop caps or illustrated initials that I need to illustrate is an fun ‘R’. I took inspiration loosely from the lettering on the iconic ‘Golden Gallopers’ carousel on Brighton Pier. While the gorgeous hand-painted lettering on the ride has a jaunty, seaside feel, I needed something a bit more ‘typographic’ but keeping that flamboyant style. Unfortunately the one above isn’t going to work in the overall design but I thought you might like to see it.

wOW! Illuminations
The design of this type specification has hugely inspired me over the last few years. The black and fluorescent decorations on the initials feel embossed with an almost flock texture. I love the positive/negative capitals and look at the way the pattern surrounding the O opens to allow the T close. It manages to look both antique and modern.
Unfortunately this rather blurry photo is all I have. In the past I took a more lackadaisical approach to note taking, and have no record of the specimen’s title. I was shown the book by the previous librarian of St. Brides. On a recent return trip I tried to find the book but with the largest collection of specimens in the world, and a change in librarians, the search was futile.
