Wondering Ponderings

A place for my meandering musings.

It really tears at my heart when they bulldoze one of my lovely asylums for no particular reason.  Pictured here is the wooden skyway that connected the 1854 Kirkbride building at Taunton State Hospital with the later infirmary ward.  It is now in pieces in a garbage dump somewhere.  And what did they replace this beautiful building with?  Currently, 5 years later, it’s a vacant lot.

Luminous Letters

I was intrigued by these delicate, flowing characters, some of which look like suspended underwater organisms. They were created by the mysterious ‘Abi’ of Cambridge, NY (no further profile listed or found).

This sort of lettering seems to go hand-in-hand with mystery. Last year Stephen Coles mused on the origins of this graceful mark. It was later identified as the Fin International logo by a helpful Type Worship reader.
