Barnett Freedman's Lettering

Barnett Freedman was widely considered to be 'the lithographer's lithographer', a consumate draftsman who produced some of the most striking dustjackets for publishers such as Faber and Faber.

I just love his lettering, hand drawn and beautifully decorated. As a young man he worked for a while cutting lettering for tombstones, a skill that transferred to his litho work at The Baynard Press.
