Custom Type in a Journal

An fans of Edgar Allen Poe out there? A fun typography project of doing some hand lettering on a  journal. This was for a client who came up with an excellent gift idea of making a Moleskin brand lined journal truly unique.

I wanted to have symbols of an older time period without being too creepy and Poe-esque. The pressed wax seal, candle holder, old English styled lettering, tiny staring eyes were all enjoyable details to draw.
