CHROMATIC WOOD TYPES

A series of postcards for Tipofino

This series of postcards is my interpretation of some of the wood letters found in the book “Specimens of Chromatic Wood Type Borders & c. Manufactured by W.m. Page&Co.Greeneville Conn” from 1874. I redrew each letter digitally, and reproduced the pieces as printed postcards. This was a personal experiment to better understand how the woodtypes performed when printed, with the additional angle of treating each as an illustration or illustrated letters.
