Type Anatomy – Sean Mirts

This example that I found interesting during our library visit has some very unique characteristics. The page is portioned out to find the center for the type to be placed properly on the page and the guide lines are still visible on the page. The language is also not English which adds another level of different characteristics that are not seem in text today. With the different lengths of words and spacing of letters it all seems very unique. The letters themselves are very detailed and all have extra details added to each. Some also carry small pieces of red ink on them throughout the page. The large character that is very ornate has blue and red ink in it as well as drawing lines that follow up and down the page. The details in each letter could only be done by had as there are minor imperfections on each letter when comparing the same letter.
