It’s not everyday one can witness a master sign painter at work, unless it’s everyday of the Wayzgoose. Saturday, November 5 was Don Black’s birthday, so after Rick Griffith printed an appropriately fabulous, oversized birthday card, John Downer added his version of Aetna. The card was signed by many of the Wayzgoose attendees and presented to Don during Saturday evening’s festivities.
During the Hatch Show Print workshop on Saturday, I caught Bill Jones printing. What do Bill and John Downer have in common?
Bill has been working on reviving Aetna via Virgin Wood Type. His awesome, five-panel accordion business card features 5 line Aetna capitals in brilliant blue.
