Hello dear followers - it’s been too long! Sincerest apologies for the sporadic posts… Since graduating from art college in London, it’s been a busy year!
From the couch-bound clutches of “funemployment” to the Devil Wears Prada (working as the editorial assistant for a design magazine), and now I’m a gallery assistant for Ireland’s oldest printmaking studio.
For any fellow Dubliners interested in book binding, we’re running a special course with artist/book binder extraordinaire Eilis Murphy next month which may tickle your fancy! TTFN x
“She ran the back of her hand along the first shelf, listening to the shuffle of her fingernails gliding across the spinal chord of each book. It sounded like an instrument, or the notes of running feet.”—Markus Zusak, The Book Thief (via thebooker)
Hi there -- The rough inspiration for our wedding theme is The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe (specifically chapter 11). I'd love to use the same typeface for our invites (and save-the-dates, and everything else) as was used in the books I had growing up, but have no idea where to find it. Paperback, published 1950, illustrations by Pauline Baynes. This has been a long shot and may not work out, but I thought I'd ask. Thanks for any help you can give.
Hi there, while I don’t know the exact typeface off the top of my noggin (and have totally lost track of my childhood copy of the book!) you can always try using ‘What the Font!’.
All you need to do is take a clear picture of the specific text and upload it to the website, where it will do its best to detect the name of the typeface! Good luck and congratulations on your big day :)
“Books are special, books are the way we talk to generations that have not turned up yet. The fact that we can actually, essentially communicate with the people in ancient Egypt, people in Rome and Greece, people in ancient Britain, people in New York in the 1920s who can communicate to us and change the way we think, and change the things that we believe.
