A Vaughan Quote

#vaughan #quote #typography

Have you ever seen a closeup of pages of old 17th century books and noticed the slight bleed at the edge of letters. That's what I was aiming at .... a result that at least reminds you of 17th typefaces and its an interesting quote too.

!7th century English poetry is also something you should look at if you have access to editions that copy the original line layout  to see how they altered the indent of lines to emphasize the text and the line breaks and metre of a verse.

I may redo this one more time and make the letters a little less rough or a different font?
Also remove my note about Vaughan and tweak the kerning?

Do read the whole poem if you can find it!
