I’m working on a covert project that may or may not be related to my next letterpress poster.
This time-lapse video shows me attempting to recreate one of the glyphs featured in Libro di M. Giovambattista Palatino, which, again, may or may not be used in a poster involving letterpress.
I captured the process using iShowU (Mac), sped it up 3000%, and edited it using Final Cut Express. Music is “Whispering Wind” by Moby.
