Today my dream Typography book came in the mail!! I’ve been trying for nearly 2 years to acquire this particular book and I’m so excited to finally have it in my hot little hands! The book is quite rare, it’s from the 1880’s and filled with gorgeous images that the Printers would have used at that time, for Newspapers, Books and Magazines. These two Silhouettes are from that book. Shown here are a darling Boy and a sweet Girl with a long Braid in her hair. The original scan was actually quite tiny, about half an inch, but I scanned them at a very high resolution and then enlarged them using Illustrator, to make them more useable. I hope you like them!
