well, you nailed it for sure. Awesome work! I think I'll go listen to Harvest now ...
@Brian Steely Thanks bud! good idea too!
Love this stuff!
Good stuff Neil.
Nice! I did something similar recently. It was interesting to find out that Tom Wilkes (who did the Harvest cover) based his type on a standard engraving that the MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan Foundry produced in the 1800s.
@Gert van Duinen thanks!!
@Michael Spitz Thanks mike!

Damn, this looks really excellent. The lettering interactions and swashes are just great, very nicely done!

@Claire is so much more gooder with the words than me. What she said.
There's a big difference between inspiration and copying. Just sayin'

@Dave Bailey I guess when the original art came from typefaces from old engraving books in the 1800, you could say the same? I understand where you are coming from, but its good to do research too. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=menu+harvest+lettering&um=1&hl=en&biw=1367&bih=977&tbm=isch&tbnid=TdW5cSxcVw6O9M:&imgrefurl=http://typophile.com/node/14501&docid=R7KjafHAEX4FZM&imgurl=http://www.marksimonson.com/menu-cut.gif&w=750&h=536&ei=1WBFT52DC-Px0gGp88nqAw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=181&vpy=165&dur=363&hovh=150&hovw=179&tx=164&ty=69&sig=101345268373644432635&page=1&tbnh=146&tbnw=171&start=0&ndsp=33&ved=0CEMQrQMwAA
@Dave Bailey It would seem that there's also a big difference between reading comments with the aim of contributing to a discussion and spouting your mouth off like a troll. Just sayin'.
