Hand drawn type with custom ligatures which was then vectorised and laser cut before being wood stained and glued together in layers to create a letter rack. The project is part of a set of installation pieces which I'll be releasing soon.

awesome - how much to reproduce? ;)
Wow, this is fantastic. Such an excellent idea! Love that first image in the attachments, I've never seen a swash stroke be so actually useful.
@James No 100% sure on reproduction cost as I got a discount price for the laser cutter, but I imagine one its cut and been packaged properly (will be packaged in a screen printed wooden box) it would be looking at something around £25. does that seem reasonable? not that sure with these sorts of things!
@Claire Coullon thanks! glad you liked the slightly extravagant swash! it was definitely experimental when I tried it.
While I'm not really knowledgeable on these sorts of things either, that seems pretty reasonable to me considering how great it turned out. Nicely done again!
Hook me up with your email mate and I would certainly be interested in that! :)
@James shoot me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll sort something out! Cheers
Will do Pete - I'll give you an email this eve.
WANT. I can't get over how beautiful this is. My only "complaint" (if you can call it that) is that the x-height of the x seems a little off, though I realize that it's because the terminals and bowls of the rest of the letters sit slightly above the x-height. Nevertheless...I would love to have this sitting at my desk.
So cool !
