Somerset Studio: The Art of Lettering

I came home from work yesterday to find best surpise in my mailbox.
The new Somerset Studio:

I submitted an exemplar so long ago,
that I had forgotten about it.

By the time I found out I'd be in this issue
I was thrilled.
(of course)

They always have gorgeous photography & layouts.
I'm so thankful to be a part of this issue.

I have been obssessed with paper and doodling
and lettering since at least fourth grade.
Typography was one of my favorite classes in college.
The whole class was about fonts:
san serifs
avant garde
I love it all

It's amazing how subtle changes in lettering styles can create
a change in the enitre mood of a piece.

I thought I'd share some of my favorite lettering artists with you.
