The ephemera: natural history owl illustrations, old mug shots, flying nuns (or are they?) , hotel luggage label, mail stickers, whiskey label, playing card, old ledger pages and vintage bingo cards.

  1. I’ve always loved old time handwriting and also admire it for the fact that they didn’t have ball point pens. I wish I could find a free font that replicates it. Odd, I do think that ‘John O’Brien’ does look like Conan O’Brien with a moustache. Must be the high cheekbones and cleft chin.

    • Yes the hats are quite a statement don’t you think? Lol. It does seem to me, that it would be a most excellent disguise for the more discriminating and fashion conscious criminal.
