What’s Past Is Prologue
I first came across this line from Shakespeare’s The Tempest in Ben Rosen’s introduction to Jan Tschichold’s Treasury of Alphabets and Lettering. Although the scene for the original quotation is a little dark (spoiler alert: Antonio uses it to justify the murder he and Sebastian are contemplating), Rosen uses it support Tschichold’s notion that all good lettering has its roots in historical exemplars. I used the line as an excuse to try my hand at an albeit light-hearted semi-formal flourished script.
