My parents, ever the entrepreneurs, are in the process of self publishing a series of essays that my mother has been working on for the last few years. (In the time since I posted this, the book has become available. Go to amazon for your copy of "Drinking from a Cold Spring" now!) Papa Birmingham tasked me with the assignment of designing a logo for their imprint: 26 Letter Press.
The following are a dozen or so variations on two initial drawings, both playing with the idea that the 2 and the 6 are actually pieces of movable type from a letter press machine.
Enjoy. . .
