More sketches from Reading

After Cason, Palatino Linotype

Since Thursday night, I’ve been in the US for my sister’s wedding, and I should have been sketching for my course at Reading. Instead, I’ve been spending time with my family, and my new MacBook Pro. Where have my priorities gone? After feeling guilty, I decided to take more photographs of some of my earlier sketches, instead of making new ones. This trick might make me feel better for about an hour or two longer! Maybe on the flight back to the UK, I’ll be able to devote some good time to work. Or tomorrow afternoon and evening. Yeah, that sounds good. I’ll just keep telling myself that ;-)

Johnston, Weiß-Antiqua

This spread was one of the first I squiggled in October, looking at drawings from Writing & Illuminating, & Lettering and a Bauer Type Foundry specimen for Weiß-Antiqua.

After Wallau

I drew these while looking at a Gebr. Klingspor specimen for the Wallau typeface.

From Linotype Devanagari, etc.
