Shift Freedom


I have an antique Royal Typewriter. On the lower right-hand shift key it says: SHIFT FREEDOM.
I dare you.

Back in the Day...


There is no question that my souped-up Mac Pro gives me a thrill, on a daily, if not hourly basis.
But who can remember the thrill of burnishing Letraset down on a cushy piece of paper with a two-sided thingy??!!!
Or the satisfaction of finding an em dash in the right font & size, on a saved galley from the month before?
(Thanks to Johno & Alec @ ilovetypography.com, for reminding me that YES, i DO still have a whole folder of Letraset, along with my beloved two-sided thingy.)

Frame Font


Saw this last fall in the frame shop window on Main Street. My apologies for the glare.
