steampunk embellishment

Well, the steampunk postcard is at the printers, the poster is about to be finalised, the ads should be appearing soon and people are beginning to work on the TVC and the website. This is just a small slice of what’s been going on in the studio – which is why it has been so quiet on the blog of late. Other than the Heritage Festival there has been books, invites, logos, brochures, banners and ads for 5 other clients. There has been frantic liaison with 2 print companies for 5 jobs and the print-reps are getting a bit dizzy, not to mention myself. But just to quickly post something in-between, I mentioned the 1876 Goethe book with exquisite etchings and I thought I would post some samples. Not only are the initial letters and embellishments beautiful but on some of the scans you can see the actual lettering in very-gothic gothic-plate. Please feel free to use these samples.
