|I have a thing for snow-capped letters in case it wasn't clear by now. And it's no coincidence I married a glaciologist. I do love the snowfall. Here is a small collection of ephemera with snow-covered letters to add to the holiday spirit. If it must be cold outside, at least we can celebrate the beauty of winterized letters. |
Oh, and that new seasonal masthead above? It is a 1975 snowed-under version of Gill Sans Bold which you can find here.
Sidenote: the Snow Shoe brand tobacco label above is one of my favorites from the Letterology archives. It is partially cropped, but I believe it must be a wrapper from a box of tobacco, like the one Mr. Snow Shoe guy happens to be also carrying with his picture on the front.
