Sajou Albums

In his last session of Typographic Delights, Twynman covered the subject of monograms. On exhibit that afternoon were various books on embroidery patterns. Most of these were Sajou Albums from the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century.

I got down to doing what I love to do and like the designs from Lettering for Stitchers, began digitizing the patterns into pixel typefaces on Fontstruct. The going has been slow with Dissertation Week taking up most of my time in the last few days, along with working on my typeface after feedback from the class and from Gerry.

Named in the order of their appearance in this post, the Fontstructions can be downloaded from Sajou I, Sajou II and Sajou III.
