Dead Words: Lignicide

  • For over centuries, thousands of English words have been created, modified, and removed. The Dead Words is a blog of lettering, where you can rediscover and interpret stories of dead words. All the letterings there are words that were once used in the English language. Today, most of them are omitted from common English dictionaries.

    So Karen contacted me a few weeks ago to see if I would like to contribute to The Dead Words project and I was more that happy to take a whack at it. Some of the words she sent me were incredible but the second I read "Lignicide," meaning Wood Cutter, this image sprang to my mind and I knew I had a winner. Make sure to check out all the wonderful letterings at Dead Words.
