i'm sure you're all curious about what i've been up to for the past week or so (i know you really don't care)


please excuse the auto levels that makes the pictures look assy, and the blurriness... and the atrocious xacto knifing. i'm exhausted and i really don't care right now.

(the inner pages are a light purple, it didn't show up too well)






























oh, and it's just a comp, so i don't wanna hear anything about my craftsmanship. it doesn't have to be perfect :P
Current Mood:
exhausted ex-fucking-hausted
Current Music:
blur: song 2

most of the fonts we use today (that aren't just internet fonts) were made in the early 1900s. that's when the printing press technology advanced enough to print in multiple sizes and allowed multiple fonts in one print.

....so those fonts indeed might still be used. there are many commercial remakes of fonts where the kerning changed, or the letter forms have changed slightly, and they don't get in trouble for it or anything, so i think you would be alright making them into typefaces. it's incredibly easy and only takes a couple of hours per font.




about halfway through the cutting of the tiny squares i wish i had done round holes. i think i'm going to try to find a tiny square hole punch. i wish i wouldn't have butchered the cutting so bad, it was by far my favorite part of it.

I guess I don't understand. This is a catalog of clip-art or something? A reference book? Other than cutting the holes on that one pull-out section what has this to do with you?

Oh, you did the whole thing? I thought it was some commercial publication- like I said, a catalog or reference book of clip-art. It confused the hell out of me why you were showing it off. Like "Look what I got in the mail!" :)

I guess this turned into sort of a compliment. I had no idea it was your work. It looks professional enough to be an IRL publication of some sort. Except for the raggedy holes. :)
