I wanted to create new letterforms from odd bits and parts. So I’ve set about breaking apart, rebuilding and gluing back together shapes of letters from old type specimen books to build new letters. The resulting drawing is scanned and placed into Photoshop where I clean up the blobs and the uneven strokes. Illustrator takes the file and it gets further refined. And then its back to Photoshop, adding a mixture of layers and blends.
In essence I am breaking and rebuilding and gluing back, several times before I am happy with the result.
The letters still retain their meaning. A’s look like A’s. B’s are still B’s. But I think there is a greater complexity to the shape. It’s not a reinvention so much as making it an old letterform more current.
I’ve done a number of letterforms and have more in the works. If there is something you would like to have constructed, please convo me, I’d love to make something for you.
I’m offering these letterforms for download.
The files are pdf’s and print to 8.5 x 11 at a resolution that will satisfy your personal needs. Other file types are available upon request.
Custom orders are available. Convo me with your request. Also Convo me if there are multiple letters you would like to download. Happy to negotiate a reduced fee for multiple letters.
Within 24 hours after purchase you'll receive this file at the email address connected to your Etsy account (unless you specify otherwise).
Be advised that the color of your prints will differ from what you see on your monitor! Every effort has been made to represent the prints on Etsy as they appear in real life, but computer monitors just can’t accurately show how the final print will look.
