Numero Due

This is the second "numbers" challenge book ~ i numeri Italiani ~ again featuring Gelli printed pages.  All these prints were made on cardstock.  The front and back cover papers were glued to thin board.  This is my first book with a Japanese stab binding ~ very easy and lovely because it is typically used on single sheets of paper rather than signatures of folios.  Finished size is 4 x 9 inches.

I found a great source for free fonts online recently, here it is if you're interested.  A lot of folks don't want to use free fonts for various reasons, but they work for me and there are a ton of cool fonts at this site.  The text font on this book is called Ransom Note.  The number font is Showcard Gothic, which is one of the standard options in Microsoft Office Suite.

Thanks for the font site, Connei - my Pop always advises: for free, take, for buy, think. That showcard gothic is a classic. Your books are really going places. -sus
