87/365 a little honest truth brought to you by the funnies

sent this comic off to a writer friend today

86/365 some reversals revealed

Discovered that a number of the letters in this set of wood type I purchased has additional characters carved onto the reverse side, so printed them to illustrate that. Top letter correspond to the same location of the bottom letters, so the 'W' has an 'M' on the reverse

Here's images of the type from when I discovered this delight.

84/365 T-U-V

Almost to the end of the alphabet; as a side note, I've been sending these to my nephew. He's 3. On the first card I asked him if he could read the letters and then say the colors to his parents; not only did he list the obvious, but he listed ALL the colors, so in the example below it would be pink, purple, blue, green, yellow

83/365 postcards and such

sent off a vintage found postcard to a friend, along with a oversized playing card postcard with my own note
