To my sort of geekdom

I'm still a very minor typography and lettering geek but I have high hopes for the future.

But whatever the outcome of my efforts, I'm pretty sure I won't tire of interesting, old book covers.

Najaar by Abraham Hendrik Jonker, as seen at Stellenbosch Antiques, a shop which naturally has a blackletter typeface for its name.

(Yes I made a snooty face when I said "blackletter"—nevermind that I usually have to wiki these things before I'm sure of my facts.)
