Handiwork

Personal project

This little thing was inspired by a browse through The University of Glasgow’s Dictionary of Old English. I started drawing some ancient-in-nature hand drawn letterforms and ended with an unintentional Eastern-tinged stamp of the word Handiwork, which is a grand old word indeed.

These 'stamps' mimic those seen on Japanese woodblocks such as the one below by Hiroshige
