Grotesque No.9

Grotesque4

Gift wrapping a birthday present for a fellow lover of typography who has a halloween birthday ended up being really fun.  First I scanned in an old sheet of vintage Willowby and Grotesque No.9 type.   Do notice that the page does NOT include the entire alphabet – the artist was supposed to just figure out the rest on her own, I guess!  I   removed the red background in photoshop and printed it out on leftover kraft paper I cut to size.

I wrapped another item in a page from a vintage theater book that has definitely seen better days – added string, stickers and spooky postcards to complete the package and it was a done deal – personalized AND recycled gift wrap!
