The Nature of Victorian
On a smaller scale, engraving is to a designer what a mural is to Leonardo; it adds a dimensionality that enlivens, aggrandizes, and perpetuates a designer’s vision. Typography is born into a breathing entity once augmented by the engraving process. The finished product thus becomes the very effigy of a designer. Nothing can replicate the precision, craftsmanship, and authenticity it brings. When I begin any project, I always look for an excuse to engrave and begin with that vision in site. On a printed piece, if you’re going to sell any vision to the client, sell them the vision of engraving: a vision of perpetuity.
