Another historical touch(s)tone?

Zipatone layout

Zip-A-Tone, a brand (type? haha) of screentone.

Our neighbors are doing some flinging preparatory to remodeling, and gifted this fine selection to JCB.

Takes me back—and I was never a graphic designer!

Mmmmmm; kitchen smells great—regular white ’taters, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts are roasting in the oven….

    I used to have a big selection of rub-on-letters. Still have a drawer full of Leroy and Koh I Noor Pens, templates, straight edges and French curves. That is so last century!

    I just got rid of my set of Koh I Noor Pens. Still have the straight edges (do NOT use my scale as a straight edge) and assorted templates.

    Mark still has some of the rub-on letters. Says he, “I’m not sure how good they are now.” I grabbed a big 30-60-90 triangle and some iso grid paper (also 30-60-90) when the Corps of Engineers cleaned out some of their drafting supplies.
