Use of Nick's Blandford Woodland
0

Hi,
I finished the costume book [[http://www.costumegoddess.com/books/tribal.htm|Tribal Vibes for Bellydancers]] I mentioned on this forum a few months ago. Thought you might like to see how I used Nick's font "Blandford Woodland" in a photo gallery spread. I bought this awhile back cause it's so beautiful, but never could find the right use for it before this.

Here it is titling the "Shaman" costuming of a troupe.

Here's what it looks like in the context of the spread called "Fantasy". The facing page featuring the Amazon costume is "Sultan" by Cananda type.

Amazing! This is exactly the kind of use I had in mind when I cobbled this font together!

I am so pleased to have approval from the (famous) designer!!

Here is my layout for the "Vintage Hollywood" page, where I used Nick's "Londonderry Air" to depict the silent film era.

The "photo-mounting corners" are from the Franklin Corners font. I'm old enough to remember those little adhesive corners that always fell off after a few decades.

Yes, I got permission from the person who posted a high quality scan of the silent film actress from his collection.

Love all this Orientalizing. ;)
