Spring letters

Spring visited us today - a lovely mild sunny day - what better day to post my next set of letters.

You might recall for this second alphabet I have moved away from shiny brass to shiny letters on a rusted background. I am using a font called Chiller; and I am engraving through the rust into the metal below. To keep the shine of the letters I am coating it all with a matte art varnish.

The letters will become part of an installation called something like letters in flight; or a flock of letters.

very nice B! I like the contrast of new & old - rust & shine. I particularly like the font you've chosen too.

Love the simplicity of the letters and the beautiful beautiful rust!
