What is this for...err...it’s a little difficult to explain.
Basically, it’s just a personal project. I am designing various paraphernalia to accompany a short story, that I’ve written (badly) in the style of 19 century Russian plays. So far, I have the cover and remaining pages, set according to the rules of pre-revolutionary orthography, a business card of a German doctor working in Viennese Krankenhaus, a photocopy of a catalog page, and a picture of the family crest.
There is no real point to any of this, just idle play in the spare time between the boring in-house jobs. At the same time, I want to make sure everything looks and feels as authentic as possible, without major anachronisms. I am trying to watch my styles, content and typefaces, packing the imagery with a plethora of hidden clues. Does anything immediately jump out at you as either historically incorrect, or aesthetically appalling?
