This morning I started a new A4 notebook
My Twelfthty-second! (That's about 1 a month/ every 2 months)
I love playing around with text and typography
Words mean so much to me, their sound, their meanings, their shape and feel.
Someone on here recently suggested I create a font
but that misses the point, and the joy, of hand-rendered lettering -
the accidents and infinite variety, the little mistakes and unexpected forms.
Done in black Indian ink (Encre de Chine) and dip pen

Ps: the Pint Pot is a sort of personal motif - a mate of mine used to call it me, on account on my diminutive stature
