Took part in: 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019
I had a box of visiting cards with my name printed in the centre as a gift from my parents, for my tenth birthday. I hated the typeface because the last letter of my name, o, looked too much like an a.
But the smell from that box was delicious. My name was set in a fancy script face, Scritto a lapis, that I encountered again and used forty years later.
