The house number on the wall of our summerhouse had worn off, so I had to paint a new one. Since I had my laptop with me I had the opportunity to choose the typeface from my archive; I ended up with Minion Pro as a homage to The Elements of Typographic Style (set in Minion Pro) by Robert Bringhurst which I had been reading during my two weeks there. I put a paper on the laptop screen, drew the numbers, cut them out with scissors, put the paper on the wall and drew the outlines there. The rough texture of the wall made the process harder but also led to a more interesting result. For the color I only had a few options. I’m very happy with how this one looks though.
