These were printed from lead type, a combination of 10pt leader dots and 6pt ornaments. I varied the line spacings within the design and printed onto both sides of these A6 file cards, which I had obtained for an earlier project.
The combination of the format and the print gives the strong impression that they contain detailed information, if only the reader was able to decipher the 'code'. I printed enough that I could create a small edition of a book, though I am not sure yet that this is what they want to be, so they are now 'resting' while I mull it over.
