With my growing interest in calligraphy I have found myself noticing interesting letterforms all around me. During a stroll around Devonport on a beautiful spring day Shop Dog and I saw many interesting A’s.
Anyone know which signs they are from?
F is for fountain pen, file, folder, foolscap and of course FitzgeraldTaylor!
Here are some Fs from around the Devonport village – top right is my favourite. I rather like forming lowercase Fs in my calligraphy, not quite so the uppercase – but I’ll keep working on it.
The letter E. Popular in our initialed stationery sets and wax seals. My favourite out of the Es on the signs of Devonport has to be the one bottom right from The Esplanade Hotel.
One would think that there would be quantities of Ds in the signs of Devonport. Whilst there were many, most of them where not particularly noteworthy. Here are my favourites.
Devonport signs don’t appear to have many interesting Cs and it was a horrible rainy morning when we went on our search. Here’s what we found. Shop dog was not too happy about the outing either – he does not really like the rain!
The fascination with letterforms continues! I think if I could I would sit at my desk and write letterforms all day.
Shop dog and I snapped these on our walk to the shop the other day. I am sure he wonders why on earth I keep stopping and making him wait!
Devonport was a little light on the letter B and oh boy some of the signs sure could do with a bit of a clean! The top left is by far my favourite.
Am already wondering what we’ll find in the way of letter Cs.
