for the love of Caslon!

29Sep09

Just couldn’t pass up posting this incredible bit of typographic greatness, all from an undergrad friend of mine, Paul. He’s currently taking a typography class at Art Center…and let’s be honest, I would give a few fingers to be in this class. It looks…insane, in every good way.

And as handlettered by Paul. These images come from his phenomenal photography blog, and you can see more images of his process in this post. For those of you who have never attempted hand-lettering a classic typeface…it’s quite an undertaking requiring steady hands, intense concentration, and a lot of practice.

I want to challenge myself to do this so badly.
