After finishing up the Christmas cards, I printed the title page and cover for a special Christmas gift. It gave me the opportunity to prowl the typecases for a special typeface. I was very happy to discover I had a complete font of Columbus in 48 point. I love the shape of the serifs on the swash capitals — truly an added bonus.
The ink was mixed to match the colour of the paper I used to bind the album. While there were a few glitches while making the album (like ordering too many photos!), generally the binding turned out quite nicely. The boards matched up well, the hinge was firm and strong, the lined pattern of the paper stayed true on the vertical. A limited edition of one.
