Page from an 1803 book on writing bought many years ago at the old Pageant Book & Print Shop on Houston Street in New York. At the time, I found this akin to my own hand drawn “flyers” project in both letter variance and form. Also, since no means of photographic reproduction yet existed, any pages from the work of former eras had to be redrawn by hand and reproduced anew, giving them now a particular charm.

7 type collages from small sketch book, 1978. Looking back, these little exploratory paste-ups took me a long way into the next 3 decades of my typographic interests and work.
