I was delighted to resurrect and reuse the BASHO style for our friends' rehearsal dinner envelopes. Gallery below.
This was a sweet project: Jes wanted a copy of the letter he gave his wife on their wedding day.
I loved working on this poem for my friend Celeste, which she gave to congratulate Quentin on choosing a graduate program.
This year, I wrote a few meaningful quotes and prayers and framed them as Christmas presents for select family members.

Introducing: A new lettering style!
BASHO is a modern copperplate-inspired font that I've been playing around with for a while. The name of the font comes from one of my favorite Japanese poets, Basho Matsuo, who is most famous for popularizing the haiku form.
More photos to come as I continue to utilize this style!
