    The link didn’t work.

    Rated them. On typography alone the best one is the one currently rated top, but that pipe spoils the image. I hate the mock-medieval font on one of them: too obviously fake.


  3. David Llewellyn Dodds says:

    Well, I can’t see how Fernando could see which one was “currently rated top”, and myself see appeals of all of them, yet dither in seeing if leaving a comment is how one in fact votes.

    If the ‘inklinginess’ of the bottom of the illustration on #73 isn’t too daring where potential buyers are concerned, perhaps I would incline most to it.

    While ‘calligraphy’ is too bold a term when I do it – I’ve been enjoying lettering with pen and ink, and, more recently, ‘calligraphic felt-tips’ for about 48 years, now, and thoroughly like the font that seems to be playing with Carolingian minuscule (‘degustibus…’?).
