Claymore printed specimen
The printed specimen serves two purposes; to show the weights and styles of Claymore and to present a short text, titled Principles of Type. The text comprises a collection of thoughts gathered over several years, and offered as a possible approach to the design thinking of a typeface.
Illuminated manuscripts and stained glass provide the inspiration for the colour pages, and the visual patterns of figured verse and calligrams are referenced for the translucent pages printed in black. In contrast to this, Principles of Type is set cleanly on grey paper and inserted as a booklet in the centre.
Printed in three specials plus black on various uncoated papers. The specimen was designed to allow a degree of randomness when assembled; resulting in several versions and a final item which is more individual and unique.
28 pages, 152mm × 230mm
The specimen is free, but postage will be applied at checkout
