Since being married, I’ve made it a habit to letter something for my wife when our anniversary rolls around each year. It’s no secret that I also use the occasion as a selfish excuse to do something that I might not otherwise have the opportunity to draw.

Lately I’ve been admiring the elegant work of Reynolds Stone, a British engraver and designer who worked during the middle part of the last century. I am particularly impressed by his modest yet masterfully-lettered book labels. Spending time with his work has certainly given me a greater appreciation for the depth —and breadth— of his abilities.
