TAKE COMFORT IN THESE WORDS
For the second time in three years, Iíve finished an ďAdditionsĒ issue. This one contains 20 pages of Suns, Moons & Stars, 14 of Superstition, 24 of Hearts & Eyes, 20 of Books & Bees, and 17 of Death, Phones, & Scissors.
This multi-topic format has been surprisingly enjoyable. If Iíd thought of the approach earlier, I couldíve skipped previous strategies of revisiting past topics: breaking issues into two parts, adding pages to later editions, or including a separate addendum. With the new approach of bundling several topics in dedicated ďAdditionsĒ issues, I can focus on the topics that have adequate material, setting aside more recently covered (or more slowly acquired) topics until theyíre ready.
Iím able to cherry-pick the best new images, building pages and finished spreads at my leisure. And as a final bonus, the freedom from deadlines lets me experiment on layouts, trying things Iíve long considered but never got around to.
The center spread of this issue is a perfect example.
The four typefaces in the back of this issue were all taken from old advertising materials. None had names, so I did the honors.
Well, it looks like Iíve reached the end of the limited space I intentionally left for an intro this time around.
Thatís it for now, friendo. Enjoy this second
Additions issue, and thank you for reading!
