Local Type
I have some type inspiration for you today. This piece of tile work was found by Doug under the dumpster at the back of one of our shops in Nelson - so I ask you, any of my local readers, have you seen this? It's from the original Hudson Bay Company at Stanley and Ward - it was originally in the doorway and at some point was moved to the back of the building in the alley - isn't it lovely? And a piece of Nelson history - watch out for it next time you are taking a short cut down the alley!


This is a detail from an ashtray - of all things - that I picked up at Colettis the other day. I was just really taken by the 3 dimensionality of the cast metal. I think that all you hand letterers will appreciate this.
