I'm setting out on a mission to design and silkscreen a limited edition card deck. I was inspired when I stumbled upon and purchased Fraktur mon Amour. I am gravitated towards to beauty of the blackletter typefaces illustrated in the experimentation between the form of the letterform and the patterns it can make when abstracted. Beautiful results in my opinion. Here are some of the explorations I've done so far. I've chosen to approach the image making in the same way the book does. I am using one of the typefaces and exploring what patterns and images I can make when I begin to abstract them and explore their decorative beauty.
