Letter March 2011

‘This is an experiment in carving one linocut letter per day in an attempt to complete an entire alphabet by March 31st. Chosen typeface: Champion Gothic by Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Lightweight was chosen based on a deep rooted affection with its ampersand.’

Was recently discussing with a culinary instructor that it’d be interesting if some of her students took one of my type classes. Imagine what would happen to plated up food with type knowledge floating thru young cooks’ brains.

Then I saw Zeughaus’ butter letters, above.
