Letterers

In case you’ve ever wondered about comic book lettering and the ‘comic book font’.

Typography is certainly an interest of mine. A pet peeve when I used to work as a graphic designer would be the inevitable ‘can you send me the font’ after I’d put together some hand-drawn lettering. And even when I had used a commercial font in some logo design the insistence of colleagues that *everything* related to that brand be written in that font (no matter how ill suited) drove me nuts.

I also love the word letterers (see also slaverers).

Frankenstein

I do love a good book cover and this Frankenstein cover by Maciej Rataski¬†does it for me. The double e in Shelley is a little lost but otherwise I’m a fan.

frankenstein

As part of the same series there are covers for Dracula or Dorian Gray, but Frankenstein is definitely the pick of the bunch.
