ANAMNESIA, an ambigram (rotate it 180° and it looks the same). Whaddaya think as a micro-publishing business name/logo? I’m thinking it would look stupendous on the bottom of the spine. The lower version uses an illustration by Gordon Grant from the book Penrod and Sam (1916) by Booth Tarkington.

In the near future I’d like to start a micro/hobby-publishing biz. I’d like to find some under-appreciated or forgotten works in the public domain and do ‘em up proper. None of this facsimile crap, none of this cheapo reprinting/POD that many companies are doing these days. I aim to design layouts, get high quality scans of the original book illustrations, and hand bind the books. In small quantities.
I have two possible names in mind for my wee company: MARKHOR, for the Middle Eastern wild goat, or ANAMNESIS, the platonic concept that all knowledge is simply remembered from past lives.
ANAMNESIS has a more solid grounding, but it doesn’t conjure the visuals like MARKHOR. The silhouette in the logo mock-up is Jane Austen, but could potentially be anybody.

My designs for this year’s Strides For Stars Walk-a-thon to benefit the Denver Waldorf School. It was great to see a couple hundred people wearing the t-shirts today!

That foot is the cleanest bit of vector art I have ever done. I am proud of that foot.

Taking a little break from tweaking the typography of the entire word and just playing around with a couple, of which the capital W is the first, and the little n the last (there isn’t actually an m in the word). I’ll probably start over with all the other letters: the a, the l, the k, the t, the h, the o

The final and full designs can be seen here.

One of the things I’d like to do in the coming year is to design and bind special editions of public domain classic literature, like The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, A Christmas Carol, The Canterville Ghost … and other such novels I can find on Project Gutenberg, like early Wodehouse, or O. Henry or Saki.

Versions of the logo I did for Beloit College’s annual Folk & Blues festival 2005. The top version was used. I still prefer the coffin design, but hey… When they put the design on the t-shirts, they printed white text on black shirts.
