Ever since I acquired a letterpress cut of an old candlestick telephone at the Printing Arts Fair I’ve had the notion of creating a telephone message pad bouncing around my head. When I heard from Kwik Kopy, the print shop up the street, that they could take my loose cards and bind them together with that magic rubbery “pad of paper” process, I was sold.
I’m using my line rule and stars (I like the idea of applying an “importance rating” to phone messages), also acquired at the Printing Arts Fair, along with my 18 pt. Gill Sans from M&H Type. Here’s the first print to come off the press, obviously in need of some modifications (mouseover to see my notes on what I plan to change).
