You can just make out the original hand lettering through the thick 300gsm paper. This was shot while the lightbox was on and all lights off to help me see even better. Again, the cry of seagulls in the background helped add authentic atmosphere! Using permanent black ink and a fine 0.2 nib, there was no going back should I make a mistake at this point. I made up the font on the hoof, but it’s a classical one based on 20+ years of being a graphic designer and art director, somewhere between a Garamond and a Times New Roman, I’d say!
