I WANDERED LONELY AS A CLOUD

For this piece I was challenged to incorporate poetry and the feeling of nostalgia into a type specimen for Plantin. In his poem, "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud," WIlliam Wordsworth describes an event so beautiful he remembers it for the rest of his life.

When thinking of ways to harness the feeling of joyous nostalgia I arrived at the recipe box, traditionally full of delicious memories passed on to children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. This type specimen takes the form of a recipe box, with each 'recipe card' becoming a part of the history and the showcase of Plantin.
