This handmade booklet is a study of the the interaction of letterforms found on the buildings and memorials of the city of Lancaster. The result of the experiment is a new and unexpected design: a variant of the letterform that is derived from the sum of the parts. These new letterforms are the ephemeral, infinitely variable and ghostly progeny of the static lithographs found in the city.
