BEAD CHAIN was inspired by a book jacket of the 1920s or 30s that featured white pearls arranged to form handsome capitals. I’m using the stately forms of Gill Sans, although some letters had to be reshaped to fit the pearls better.
Then, after seeing Chicago again, I made MARQUEE, a companion negative font. Use them separately or layered together.
