Bob Dylan´s Hand Lettering Experience

Yesterday I stumbled upon this wonderful hand-drawn typography exercise done by designer Leandro Senna.

Description of the project:

“I´ve been thinking for a lot of time on doing a personal project where I could get out of the computer for a little bit, and have pleasure doing something handmade. Getting back to the basics.

Inspired by Bob Dylan´s Subterranean Homesick Blues video, where he flips cards with the lyrics as the song plays, I decided to recreate those cards with handmade type. I ended up doing all the lyrics, and not just some of the words, as Dylan did.

There are 66 cards done in one month during my spare time using only pencil, black tint pens and brushes. The challenge was not to use the computer, no retouching was allowed. Getting a letter wrong meant starting the page over.”

You can view all the frames here, or watch the video below. Beautiful stuff!
