No Word for “Winter”
Simply beautiful typography. Some odd choices in the “Bermuda,” with the bowl of the R lower than the B’s, a double wide M, and that low A cross, but that’s nitpicking. More on the Munson Steamship Line, with lots of ephemera, here.
There’s something nice about the pen artifacts, too – the analog warmth of imperfection, maybe. I’ve not liked the digital version of the New Yorker typeface for this reason. It’s too sharp and straight; this kind of perfection hasn’t helped it any. I don’t think it’d help this, either.
