Found on page 241 of an 1892 Specimen book published by Palmer & Rey type founders. The full text reads Honor the Dude King, probably a reference to Evander Berry Wall, who, according to Wikipedia, was “a New York City socialite… famous for his extravagantly refined look and was crowned ‘King of the Dudes’ in the 1880s.”
Our friends in Tanlines, Eric and Jesse, are both stay-at-home dads. They released a new EP of kids music today, covers of classics like “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Row Your Boat”. Listen to it here. As with their previous album cover, we helped out by putting tiny type in the corners. The photo, which is not of their kids but just two kids that sort of look like them, was taken by Jenny Hueston.
