Lang Fairy Tales Title Page Lettering, Folio Society

Even if you’re not a fairytale fanatic as I am, who could fail to be inspired by these beautifully written stories by renowned folktale writer and collector, Andrew Lang. Gloriously illustrated by Caitlin Hackett and Kate Baylay, these luxuriant boxed tomes, the Olive and Lilac Fairy Books, published by The Folio Society, are reminiscent of the old, linen-bound Edwardian books in my collection from childhood. With this in mind, I took Edwardian type as my inspiration and drew up the letters by hand, fitting them line by line within the illustrative borders of the title pages.
